Mixed Cookie Tray

Winter holidays began and the festival mood is in the air. Cookies are my choice to celebrate. Also, cookie tray would be a perfect to keep my son hunger low, as he is at home.

Instead of just one type of cookie thought to bake three different kinds for different moods.

The First cookie is Gluten-free chocolate cookies.  Gluten Free?...........In other words no flour.

What is Gluten ? Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat and other grains. Gluten is responsible for elasticity of dough. hence, also for chewiness of baked product.

But, these cookies are backed without flour (Gluten) is very different. I got this recipe from here.

Ingredients : 2 ½ cups of sugar    ;     1/2 cup of coco powder    ;         1/2 tsp cinnamon powder        ;      1/4 tsp of salt          ;        3 egg whites           ;          1 tsp vanilla essence        ;         2 ½ cups of semi sweet chocolate chips. 

Procedure:  In a bowl add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt and mix with hand mixer.  Add egg whites and mix well until all combine well. 

Add vanilla extract and chocolate chips and mix them gently with wooden spoon.

Using the small spoon, scope the batter onto the baking tray and spread a bit.

Transfer the tray in to 180°C Preheat the oven to bake about 15 minutes or until the cracking on the top.

Allow it to cool and transfer them to an air tight container.

The second one is Thumbprint cookies. These are popularly known as holiday / picnic cookie. These are called thumbprint because, pressed with a thumb in the center and filled with jam.

You may refer my Coconut shortbread cookies Recipe. After brushing with milk, roll on the crushed mixed nuts instead of coconut. Press with thump in the center to make a dent and bake. Once, the cookies are cooled, fill the dent (at center) with Strawberry Jam.


The third one is sugar cookies. Refer my earlier post Button Cookies  prepare the cookie dough and just cut the dough with normal round cookie cutter and bake as directed.

    1. 1 ½ tbsp. of Flake seed powder + 1 ½ tbsp. of Agar powder + 9 tbsp. of water (blend well) can be substituted for 3 egg white. (Please note, I haven’t tried for this recipe. However, tried with some other with optimal result) revert to me if works fine. All the best.
