Whole Wheat Nutty Butter Cookies

The other day my son and hubby sat enjoying a pack of Good Day biscuits. I honestly felt a little jealous. So well, the next thing i did was to taste the biscuit with utmost concentration. Ofcourse i had to recreate a healthier version of it. Needless to say these were a hit. I won’t say they taste like the store bought ones, much better if anything.

Once you get past the nutty crunch , the sweet buttery biscuit just melts in your mouth. I bet you cant stop at one. We enjoyed ours with ginger tea and the kids with their milk. What’s your plan?

Recipe Notes

Notes-

Please see the post - Cookie Basics [ under Kitchen Stories and More] to clear any doubts regarding the steps involved.

These cookies are buttery and tend to spread out. Thus refrigeration becomes necessary. It is also important to keep enough space between each cookie while arranging them in the baking tray.

I simply powdered the nuts in my mixer. Just give one grind or two. Otherwise it might turn into a paste.
