I always wanted to try cookies using whole wheat flour but wasn’t confident about the taste. But today I tried out these wonderful jam drop cookies using whole wheat flour instead of all purpose(maida). Earlier I had prepared jam cookies sandwich style and this time I made these jam thumbprint egg less cookies.
Serving: 24 cookies
Time: 20 Mins
- 1 Cup ( 128 Grams) Whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup(113 Grams) butter
- 1/3 cup(67 Grams) White powdered sugar
- Few drops of Vanilla Essence
- Mango or strawberry jam to fill the cookies.
Using electric hand mixer,whisk butter kept at room temperature along with sugar for around a minute till it is light and fluffy.
Mix vanilla essence.
Add flour and mix well.
Do not knead. Make a dough.
Make balls around 1 inch size and arrange them in the baking tray lined with ungreased butter paper or silver foil. Keep 1 inch space between each ball.
Using thumb, make impressions on each ball.
Keep dropping any kind of jam of your choice in the impressions formed on these balls. I have used mango jam .
Bake at preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit for 10 minute.
Let them cool for 15-20 mins outside and store in airtight container.
