Yes, unbelievable but apparently there are people in the world who don’t like the Cardamom!!! And i married one of them….
So for the man i married, i wanted to bake some cookies…Once again i went to Nag’s Edible garden and this time the Melting Moments caught my fancy (because it’s easy, healthy and i had everything it asked for with me 🙂 )
I made them and hubby loved them!!! This called for another batch 🙂
Meanwhile Mansi did a post on Spritz cookie she made using cookie press and i was intrigued…She also posted a picture of her cookie press, and i realized that it looks pretty much like my Sev no sancho (Kitchen press). So i decided to try the technique in my 2nd batch of melting moments..And i was able to make flower shaped cookies!! Thought they are not as pretty as Mansi’s but Zini liked the shape 🙂I made 20 cookies, but next day when i wanted to take the picture only this one was left!!! Hence a lone cookie’s photo 🙂 Made another batch hence updating the photos 🙂

So here is the recipe 🙂
Whole Wheat flour – 3/4 cup (The original recipe says Maida, you can use that for softer cookies, but whole wheat too works alright)
Cornflour – 3 tablespoon
Icing Sugar – 1/2 cup (I had the dried sugarcane juice/Jaggery powder i used that)
Granulated white Sugar – 1 teaspoon
UnSalted Butter – 1/2 cup(at room temperature) – You can use salted butter also, but then skip salt
Cocoa powder – 3 tablespoon
Salt – 1 pinch (If using salted butter then skip this)
1) Mix all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix them well.
2) Add the butter and knead the dough.
3) Keep aside for some time (preferably in fridge).
4) Now preheat an oven at 180 degree C.
5) Grease a baking tray.
6) Take the dough of the size of a lemon and flatten it to get the circular, cookie like shape and arrange on the greased baking tray.
7) Using a fork, mark straight lines on the flattened cookies.
