Orange Cashew Wheat Cookies | Eggless Wheat Cookies with Orange and Cashew

For the second day of Bakeathon, I decided on a simple cookie that had only Wheat cookie recipe and also called for an addition of Orange Juice. After baking I almost thought this was a flop, only I decided I would bake it further and see what happens. I was pleasantly surprised at the way this turned out.

I must note here that this is the best tasting cookie I have baked and would make sure I repeat this again. Fearing that it might turn out so so, I had halved the recipe, which I sorely regretted. I must have gone ahead and made the full recipe. Having decided on the entire set of recipes that I want to bake, I keep out the butter everyday and then keep it back in again. Finally I was able to bake late in night and managed two in one shot, though I had wanted to do three. So this repeated for the next two times. I guess this is easy to manage with cookies and cakes, though yeast bread might end up little tough to manage in a late night drama. The recipe is adapted from my filed collection.

How to bake Orange Cashew Wheat cookie

Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk to get a soft dough.

Pre heat the oven at 185 Deg C.

On a greased tray, scoop out a spoonful of batter. Bake at 185 deg C for 20 mins.

Depending on the crispiness, bake for another 5 - 7 mins or till the cookies are golden brown in colour.

Cool completely and store in an air-tight container.

Notes:

You can freeze the dough for 10 mins and then cut out shapes or using a piping bag, press out even discs. Depending on the nozzle, you can shape the dough out.

I started with baking at 15 mins, then continued for 5 - 6 mins.

Baking time can vary depending on the moisture content with the milk and orange juice added. You can always take a risk at opening it in interval to check on the done ness of the cookie.


The cookie had a nice and inviting brown colour with a delicious after taste. You are left with wanting to bite more. The cashew bits added to the richness and you wouldn't think this was baked with just wheat flour.
