Eggless Almond Ginger Cookies

This happened during Christmas holidays… My 3 year old was watching his cartoons and the characters were making cookies. He said to me – "Mum... You make cookies for me in my house? Please?" I felt so good that he actually asked something.

Then it started... "You make Pasta for me?", "You make Dosa for me?", Idli, Cake, Chocolate Cake, Vegetable Rice (he means pulao), Chicken, Fish Fingers, Soup etc. Not on the same day (Thank Goodness for that). But every now and then.

I did make all of them but never made cookies. When Kalyani announced this month's Magic Mingle, I knew I had to make cookies for him. I searched a lot for the ideal recipe but decided to mix and match a few.

Here's how I make Ginger & Almond Cookies.

Makes: approx 24 cookies

1 cup Whole Wheat Flour - I used Pillsbury Atta
1/2 cup Almonds - Blitzed to a powder in the food processor
1.5 tsp Ground Ginger
125 gms Softened Butter
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC.
  2. Grease a baking sheet and keep ready.
  3. Sift all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  4. Add the butter and form a dough.
  5. Divide into 24 equal parts.
  6. Place them on the greased baking sheet and press so its half an inch in thickness.
  7. Bake for about 18 - 20 minutes or till golden brown.
  8. Let cool and serve. Store any leftover (if any) in an air tight container.

This goes to the following events:
