Wheat flour cashew cookies

Cookies are favorite to all kids..when I was searching for my favorite Good day Biscuits I came across a recipe  which is similar to Good day. But,with lot of changes I prepared according to our taste buds. They turned out yummy.These are  very healthy and tasty with easily available ingredients...Here goes my recipe.Posting this recipe in BM#62 Under the theme Toddler snacks.



Ingredients:


  • Wheat flour 1 1/2 cup( 160ml cup rice cooker cup)
  • Milk powder 1/4 cup
  • Butter 1/2 stick( 1/4 cup)
  • Sugar 1 cup( Or 3/4 cup if you eat less sugar)
  • Egg 1 large( Optionally you may use only egg white if you don't like yolk smell)
  • Baking powder 3/4 tspn
  • Vanilla essence 1 tspn
  • Roasted chopped cashew nuts(finely chopped) 3 tbpns
  • Milk 3 tbspns
  • Salt a pinch
Procedure:
  • Take a bowl sift wheat flour, baking powder , salt,.then add milk powder mix it well.
  • Dry roast  chopped cashew nuts in a pan until changes its color,then keep aside.
  • In another bowl take powdered sugar or icing sugar and  butter ,beat until fluffy using electric hand blender, then add egg ,beat one more min ,combine well with vanilla essence ,cashew nuts and milk.( keep few chopped cashew nuts just to sprinkle on top before baking.)
  • Now slowly add flour mixture mix it well. You can use hands if not comfortable with spatula..gently mix it well to form a smooth dough.
  • Cover the dough tightly in wax paper and keep in refrigerator for 1 hr or 10 mins in freezer.
  • After 1hr ,arrange a baking tray with parchment paper or aluminium foil and take little lemon size ball (nearly half inch small ball) .Press lightly with back of fork on top of each cookies to give a desired shape.
  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • Bake around 12 to 15 mins or until edges turn little brown.
  • Allow it completely cool for 30 to 40  mins and then slowly shift to air tight box.


Note: If you prefer crispy cookies roll the dough like chapathi and slowly cut the shapes using cookie cutter..This way they turn flat and more crispy.
Mine was crispy outside soft inside the way we prefer.
If you feel dough is hard add little extra drops of milk
