Eggless Custard Powder Cookies (Whole Wheat)

Merry Christmas:-)

As I am on vacation, I could not try out new recipes for holiday specials. Started browsing my drafts and saw a cookie recipe and cake recipe, so decided to post a cookie recipe for Christmas and cake for New year 🙂

Sometime back, I got custard for preparing fruit custard. After preparing fruit custard, I had custard powder left and was thinking what to do with it.  Hubby and kid liked the Walnut Butter Cookies, so thought of preparing some cookies with custard powder.

Preparation time : 10 mins | Baking time: 13 – 17 minutes

Category: Cookies

Ingredients:

Wheat flour – 1  cup

Custard Powder – 1/4 cup (I used vanilla flavor)

Light Brown sugar – 1/3 cup

White sugar – 2 tbsp

Baking Soda  – 1/4 tsp

Baking powder  – 1/2 tsp

Butter – 1/3 cup melted in room temperature

Milk – 2 tbsp

Vanilla essence – 1/4 tsp

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree F and place the parchement paper/ butter paper/ Aluminium foil on the cookie tray and grease the cooking tray with cooking spray
  • Seive the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and transfer them into a bowl. Add brown sugar, white sugar and custard powder and mix well. Add butter to the dry ingredients and make crumble

  • Add 2 tbsp of milk and make a soft dough. Make small balls and in a clean surface, press each ball lightly and bake the cookies for about 13 – 17 minutes or until cookies are lightly gold brown. Cool them and enjoy:-)

My Notes:

  • Can use cookie cutter for desired shape
  • I prefer my cookies on the sweeter side, so adjust sugar according to your taste
  • Cookies appear chewy initially but they became crisp after they are cooled completely
  • Add extract according to the flavour of custard powder.If you are using butterscotch custard use extracts accordingly
  • I used both brown sugar and white sugar, instead white sugar can be fully used
  • All purpose flour/maida can be used instead of wheat flour
  • Oil can be used instead of butter
  • Cocoa powder can be used if you like chocolate flavour
