Whole Wheat Cookie

My contribution to Trupti’s Little Chefs in the Kitchen Event

1 cup whole wheat flour (Atta)(you can use maida cuz you will get hard cookies with atta)
½ cup powdered sugar
½ cup hot melted butter
½ ts cardamom (I didn’t put cuz of kids)

Mix all the ingredients and make dough. Cover it and put it in fridge for 20 minutes. Knead the dough for another 2-3 minutes. Roll it very very thin and let your kids cut it in different shape or make 1 big cookie & let them decorate it for special occasions like I did;-) Bake it till its golden brown (20-25 minutes).

Next time Im mixing some shredded coconut & nuts in the dough:-)

i KNEW it! it was only a matter of time before you became a food blogger! ;) lol! ironic that you should use your diet blog!
thanks for the recipe, 'we'll try it too...btw, just curious why skip cardamom for the kids? do they not like the taste?

when I decided to make this food blog, I was smiling thinking of your previous comment :-)

Actually lately I am trying quite recipes & I think everybody post recipes for others to try, so its their right to know & see how they turn out.. thats how the food blog was born, just a few months apart from other blog: -) lol (couldn’t resist saying that;-)

I didn't have the powdered one and they don't like little chunks;-) If you look closely, you will see a little black thing in the middle circle shape. thats black cardamom which is how I remembered these cookies from my childhood:-)

One way to make softer cookies is to use half of plain flour(maida) and half of whole wheat flour(atta). You could also use a bit of baking powder.
