Lockdown has led to cravings for sweets and savouries.
Tried these delish looking cookies and they tasted heavenly!!!
The aroma that filled the kitchen was so refreshing and tempting that within minutes of baking the cookies disappeared.
My family loved them so very much.
Would bake more of such cookies with some variations…….
Wheat flour – 3/4 cup
Oats flour -1/4 cup
Butter – 1/4 cup
Almonds bits – 2 table spoons.
Vanilla essence – 1 small spoon.
Jaggery powder – 1/2 cup.
Baking powder – 1/2 t spoon.
Salt – less than a quarter spoon.
Milk – 1.5 spoon.(Room temperature)
In a deep bowl pass the wheat flour, oats flour and baking soda through a sieve and sift them twice.
This step is important to get a good texture.
You may use the normal oats and powder them.
Keep the sifted dry ingredients aside.
Now in another deep bowl, beat the melted butter slowly using the manual beater.
Add the jaggery and beat until it gets fluffy.
This will take less than five minutes.
Now add the vanilla essence and salt.
Now slowly add the sifted flour to the butter and sugar mixture and make a dough using the milk.
Divide the dough into 12 to 13 small balls.
Flatten the balls with the help of your palms.
Now grease the baking tray and keep a parchment paper on it.
Place the slightly flattened cookie balls on the parchment paper leaving an inch of space as they rise a bit while baking.
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees for 10 minutes.
Now bake the cookies at 170 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.
Allow to cool and then store them in airtight jars .
Enjoy them with family , with tea coffee or milk.
You may use plain or brown sugar in place of jaggery.
