Wheat Cookies-The result is what matters!

I should accept that I din't expect what I got.  I had in mind, round cookies, but that's not what it turned out to be!  I would say I still got yummy cookies :)  The melted butter in the cookies gives an awesome taste that a sweet hater too will love this recipe!

Preparation Time - 15 mins
Cook Time - 30 mins
Serves - 20 cookies

Measurements & Ingredients:
  • Wheat flour - 3/4 cup (6oz)
  • All purpose flour(maida) - 1/4 cup
  • butter at room temperature - 3 oz - 4 oz
  • brown sugar - 3/4 cup
    • OR regular sugar - 1/2 - 3/4 cup
  • sliced almonds - 1/2 cup
  • pinch of salt(if the buttter is unsalted)

 Mix the flours, sugar, salt(if using unsalted butter) well.  Then add the sliced almonds and mix.  Now add the butter and mix well.  You will get a soft dough(which will be a little sticky). 
Make 20 parts and round them into cookie shape with your hands.  Place them on an aluminium foil which is placed on a baking tray.  Place them at least 5 inches apart.  I had placed them much closer and that is why I couldn't get round cookies, as they had merged together.

Preheat the oven at 350 degree F.  Once it is heated, place the baking tray on the middle rack and bake it for 15 - 20 mins depending upon your oven settings.

Take it out after 15-20 mins and let it cool for 10 mins.  If you have the cookies round, take them out and enjoy them, otherwise, once you take it out of the oven, cut them into desired shapes with a knife and let it cool.

Store it in an air-tight container for a few days, if you could resist finishing it :)
