Cooking Time:
10 mins

Ingredients:

  1. 170 grams unsalted butter, softened
  2. 80 grams muscovado sugar or powdered jaggery (refer notes)
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  4. 210 grams whole wheat flour
  5. 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt

Procedure:

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar (or jaggery) until very light. Scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple times during the process to be sure that all the butter and sugar are getting properly creamed.
  • Add the vanilla extract and mix well.
  •  Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add this dry ingredient mix to the creamed butter and sugar. Combine until a soft dough forms.
  • Cling wrap the dough and chill in refrigerator until slightly firm.
  • Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • Shape the cookies with your hand or with cookie cutters and place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

  •  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are just golden. Let cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Store in an airtight container, where the cookies will keep for up to 1 week. The dough can be refrigerated for 1 week or frozen for 1 month. This is a great make-ahead dish to plan before a party.
  • These cookies can be eaten as is or will also do beautifully sandwiched around a layer of ice cream!
  •  You can also ice these cookies to make it look more festive. But we prefer the ones without the icing because it tends to get too sweet.

 Notes

  • If you are using jaggery, add a little less because it tends to get too sweet.

Sugar cookies are must-have on every Christmas table. Both Kids and adults love them. How about giving your kids a chance to help you make these yum cookies? My daughter loved shaping them with her little hands. She refused to use the cookie cutters I had.

These cookies are completely free of refined flour and refined sugar free!!

This Christmas, pave the way for your family towards healthy eating by indulging in home-made and healthy bakes. Enjoy!
