eggless wheat flour cookies
 Every year I try some eggless baking recipes during December. This year I started baking with this healthy, eggless wheat flour jaggery cookies. Its an Indian style wheat flour cookies ( atta cookies) adding jaggery and cardamom powder. I followed the recipe from Cook with Manali. You can use cinnamon powder or vanilla essence for different flavor. I too recommend the same as my daughter din't like cardamom flavor. I have used ghee in this recipe. You can also use soft butter at room temperature. Since this is a whole wheat cookies with jaggery, its taste cannot be compared with usual butter cookies. But this tastes more like digestive biscuits. I have also discussed how to make this cookies without oven under step by step pictures section. Ok friends, do try this easy eggless atta cookies and share your feedback.

WHEAT FLOUR COOKIES - STEP BY STEP PICTURES
  • In a wide bowl, sieve whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon powder.

  • In another bowl, sieve powdered jaggery and remove the lumps if any. Add ghee and mix well to dissolve jaggery.

  • Add milk and make a paste. Add the sieved wheat flour mixture. Bring everything together to make a dough. If its too dry, add 1/2 tbsp more milk. But do not use more milk. Cookies may turn chewy, not crispy. No problem if the dough has cracks.

  • Take the dough and roll with rolling pin. You can roll it thin or thick. Cut into rounds or any shapes as you like. Thick cookies takes more time to bake. So I would recommend to make thin sized cookies in thickness. This cookies won’t double in size after baking. So make round shapes and arrange in the baking tray with little gap. I kept 5 per batch. Prick the cookies with fork or tooth pick.

  • Preheat oven in convection mode at 180c. Keep the baking tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes based on the thickness of cookies. Keep an eye after 12 minutes. Bake till bottom of the cookies turn golden brown. Check if its not soft to touch. Remove the cookies and let it cool down in a wire rack or a plate. Bake the next batch. (Preheating is not needed for each batch).Cookies turn crispy after cooling down completely. If its not crispy, you can bake again for more time.  
  • To bake the cookies without oven. :  Take an old unused kadai, flat or slightly curved kadai is fine. Keep the kadai in high flame and pre heat for 5 minutes. Now place a small plate or bowl as a stand. Keep the baking tray over the stand. Cover the kadai and lower the flame completely. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Keep an eye else cookies may burn. (Instead of baking in empty kadai, you can spread 1 inch powdered salt and follow the same).

Note

  • For variations, you can add brown sugar. But quantity may slightly vary. Check for sweetness and add more if you need.
  • I used cardamom powder for flavor but it was not so great. So I would suggest to use cinnamon powder or vanilla essence.

  • Baking time varies from 12 to 20 minutes.
