Something Special For Women’s Day to celebrate this day in all its Glory!!
Has to be something delicious yet Healthy for all the Lovely Women out there n what better than A combination of Oats, Cranberries n Almonds for the very Conscious Woman of Today!
This is a Cookie Recipe which I have made in a Giant Cookie but can also be made into normal cookies; as also can give variations like substitute the almonds for any other nuts or the cranberries for black currants or raisins!!
I even added Thandai powder to one such cookie n it really added a unique Indian Flavour!! Just add 2 tsp thandai powder to the recipe
So U need
Half cup butter room temperature
Half cup granulated white sugar
Half cup demerara brown sugar
1 cup oats
1 cup Maida/ All purpose flour
2 to 3 tbsp of milk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon powder ( as much as u prefer/ optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/ 4cup cranberries
3/4 cup almonds chopped/sliced
Preheat the oven to 180 degree C
Mix the flour with the baking soda n sieve: keep aside
Take the butter in a big mixing bowl n whisk for about 30 secs ; then add both the sugars n beat again for about a minute; add the vanilla extract, the milk n beat for a minute again.
Now take the flour mixture n slowly incorporate it into the above wet mixture n beat till just about mixed; remember we don’t have to beat more as we are baking a cookie n not a cake
Then with a spatula mix in the oats n then the cranberries n almonds very gently ; the dough should be smooth n creamy
Take a round 9″pan n line it with parchment paper; press the whole cookie dough into the pan very lightly; see to it that it is even all over.
Now bake for 20 to 25 minutes till done; do not overbake as the cookies continue to bake even after they are removed from the oven!!
U know the cookie is done when the aroma fills the Air!! I love the Aroma of freshly baked cookies
U can decorate this Giant Cookie with white chocolate n some sprinkles ; or can even use some butter icing if u like!!
If you don’t want to make a giant cookie simply make smaller cookies out ofthe same dough!!
So here’s wishing you all A Happy N Healthy Women’s Day!!
