Eggless cookies!!!

I am a vegan and always find baking these cookies a big challenge. The aroma of freshly baked cookies is so irresistible. My daughters are so fond of them that they have the recipe on their tips. They will take out  butter stick and all measures in the night, which tells me what's baking in the morning!! 

For cookies what you will need

  • Pizza stone/ cookie sheet
  • 1/2 cup organic gram flour or besan
  • 1/3 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup organic wheat farina or sooji
  • Pinch of pure baking soda 
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic coarse grounded cardamom
  • 1/2 cup or 8 Tbsp. organic unsalted butter (Room temperature) (do not heat up the butter)
  • 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. organic sliced almonds

 Here is how to...

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degree.
  2. In a large bowl whisk well dry ingredients (whole wheat flour, wheat farina, gram flour, baking soda, cardamom, almonds) 
  3. Whisk together butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy
  4. Mix wet and dry ingredients and knead well. 
  5. Pinch off tablespoon-size pieces of the dough, press them gently and place them on pizza stone/ cookie sheet
  6. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or till light golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a rack. 
  7. Enjoy!
