This is ma first ever post to Sweet Punch.. bt may be the last one to post this month's punch... I wanted to make this for ma kids' school party and so dragged d baking!!. .. This is delicious, crunchy & also guilty free as we used wheat instead of white flour. This recipe was chosen by Ria of Sweet Punch ;but originally adapted from Manjula.
All ingredients are readily available in our kitchen & anyone can attempt this even if they dont know the basics of baking.
Whole wheat flour/Atta 1 cup
Castor Sugar 1/2 cup
Salt 1/4 tsp
Cardamom/elaichi powder 1/2 tsp
Butter 1/2 cup
Milk 2 tbsp
Almonds 1/4 cup
Preheat the oven to 360 F/160C.
Mix flour,sugar,salt,sliced almonds and cardamom powder in a bowl.
Add soft butter and milk to the mix and knead it into a soft dough. If u want, u can add more milk, but only one tsp at a time.
Divide the dough into equal parts and roll them into balls.
Press each ball between palms half inch thickness(u can use a fork too) and place them on cookie sheets about an inch apart. Press some almond slices to garnish the top of the cookies.
Bake for 15 -18 mins till light brown.
Let cookies cool for about 2 to 3 mins before taking them off the cookie sheets
