Orange and Almond Cookies


I must confess, had i not stopped buying cookies from the stores, probably i would have never tried  making them at home! Its always the first time that you re apprehensive, about trying out something new! But once you crack the formula, then there s no looking back:).

After i had tried out the oat cookies, i figured out a few things about baking them with different ingredients. Including fresh flavors are always nice and i tried this using the fresh orange juice and zest, also to make it a little nutty thought of adding in some almonds as well! To my surprise it had a very different texture to it, it was hard and crunchy from the outside and had a softer centre. Perfect!

Ingredients:|Preparation Time: 10 to 15 mins|

  • Fresh Orange Juice  1/2 cup(Juice of 2 oranges)
  • Orange Zest  1 tbspn
  • Wheat Flour  2 cups
  • Almonds 1/2 cup(Powdered coarsely)
  • Brown Sugar  1 cup(Powdered Fine)
  • Pure Olive Oil  3/4 cup
  • Baking Soda  2 tspn
  • Salt  1/2 tspn

Method:|Baking Time: 15 to 20 mins|



Mix all the ingredients together and make a dough. Preheat the oven at 180 deg C. Take small equal portions of dough(make any shape of your choice), keep it small and placed 1 inch away from each other on a greased baking tray. Bake it for about 15 mins, check if its lightly browned or else bake it for 5 minutes more. Once done, pull the tray out and let it cool for 10 mins and then take it out and store it in a jar. Serve it with tea:)
