I baked my first ever cookie at home last week and it turned out perfectly yum. Thought of updating that cookie recipe as my 200th post. Before giving out the recipe just wanted to share few thoughts running in my mind right now 🙂
I have been blogging since 2010. There were lots of ups and downs in my personal life and due to various reasons I couldn’t update my blog often. But I never gave up. I consider this little space as my own kingdom. I feel like I have achieved a little something when my close friends say that they tried out a recipe from my blog. They regularly give their inputs and reviews of my recipes. Apart from that I don’t receive many comments from you all. In case if you are a reader of my blog do leave a comment and let me know if you liked the recipe or even if you hate it please do let me know __:-D :-D.
Criticism always helps one person to grow and achieve more if taken in right sense. I guess am bit lazy to not have improvised the layout and structure of my blog. So this 2015 I will take this up as a challenge and by the end of year I promise to make this blog even more lively and colorful. _Keep visiting this space and support me.
Ok so coming back to oatmeal cookies this is an egg less recipe. I used self raising flour. You can substitute with whole wheat flour as well. With the below measurement you can make approximately 18-20 cookies.
Dry Ingredients :
- Self raising flour/All Purpose flour/Maida – 1 cup.
- Rolled Oats – 1 cup.
- Cinnamon Powder – 1/2 tsp.
- Nutmeg powder – 1/2 tsp.
- Baking Powder – 1 tbsp.
- Powdered Sugar – 1/2 cup.
- Elaichi (Cardamom) Powder – 1/2 tsp.
Wet Ingredients :
- Butter at room temperature – 1/2 cup.
- Vanilla essence – 1 tbsp.
- Milk – 4 tbsp.
Method of Preparation :
Sift together flour,baking powder, spice powders.
Whisk butter and powdered sugar together. They become creamy texture after 3-5 minutes.
At this stage add milk and vanilla essence and again whisk for couple of minutes.
Then add dry flour mixture to this wet ingredient bowl. Start mixing them slowly.
Add the rolled oats as well. If you think the mixture is too dry add some milk.
Or else just leave it. They form a creamy dough.Shape them into flat discs.
First batch of cookies before going into the oven.
You can add chopped raisins or nuts to give extra crunch to your cookie.
Preheat your oven for 180.C I am using gas oven so I preheated it in Gas Mark 4 for 10 minutes.
Arrange a baking tray with butter paper and then place the cookies.
Bake up to 20 minutes if you want a smooth little gooey cookie. Or bake a little longer like I did for a crunchier cookie.
Second batch of cookies fresh from oven.
Enjoy it with a hot cup of milk,tea or hot-chocolate.
