Whole Wheat - Almond Cookies


I had received these cookies as entries from fellow food bloggers when I  hosted CWS - Wheat and was planning to try them since then. At last I got to try them recently and was happy with the result. The process is simple and yields quite delicious and flavorful cookies. They are addictive, even to kids. Feel free to substitute any other nuts for almonds.

Ingredients: (Yield 16 cookies)
1 cup whole wheat flour 
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
A pinch of salt
1/4 cup sliced almonds
6 Tbsp butter (at room temperature)
3 Tbsp milk or as needed

Method:
* Preheat the oven to 350 deg F.
* Combine the first five ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then add the butter and sugar and mix them to form the dough.


* Divide the balls into 16 portions (less or more depending upon the size). Roll each portion into a ball and slightly flatten them.
* Arrange the flattened balls on baking sheet leaving some space in between. They don't spread much. Bake them for about 18 minutes or until they are slightly golden.
Let them cool and store in an airtight container.

Note:
They quite firm up after cooling and so don't be tempted to bake longer or leave them in the oven until they turn crisper. If you do , they would be good substitutes for paperweights.

I baked something similar to these cookies but left out cardamom powder as I don't like that flavor.Cookies look very crisp and delicious.
