Savory cookies

It’s such a wonderful feeling when you pick greens fresh from the garden and use it in your kitchen. I don’t have a typical garden here in Mumbai, but rather few pots in my small balcony with some interesting and easy to grow plants. The mint and ajwain plant in particular is really growing well and I have keep thinking of ways to use it interestingly.

Avvi, enjoys eating the leaves as it is but I prefer them in these cookies. I have made these cookies from Sunita’s blog earlier too with just mint leaves, but added ajwain this time. As usual, Avvi had fun cutting cookies in interesting shapes and I was a happy and satisfied mummy seeing him enjoy these cuties. This is a regular in his snack box.

Me and my mum enjoyed it with Launji ( a dip made from raw mango) along with tea. You can also try it with some jam or Nutella. Hope you all too enjoy making and eating these cookies as much as I do.

Tip in the wet into the dry and make the dough by mixing lightly with fingertips till everything comes together. Do not knead or the cookies would turn out to be very hard.

Roll the dough and cut the desired shapes. If required, lightly flour the board.

Place the cut out shapes on the lined tray, a little apart from each other.

Place it in preheated oven for 15 to 17 mins till the top is lightly browned.

Transfer the cookies on the wire rack and let it cool completely before storing in airtight containers.
