My passion of baking made me try out whole wheat flour cookies. And that too butter cookies which is the most favourite for kids at home. Whenever we visit bakery kids grab a pack or two. Now when I told them I am making it at home, they just jumped up in joy and was ready to help me to make it. I researched the internet, went through a few lot of websites and atlast came out with my own recipe. And viola, it did turn out pretty well and tasty. 

Whole wheat flour - 2 cups (heaped)                                                                 
Sugar Powder - 2.5 cups (heaped) (can reduce it according to taste)
Salt - 1 tbsp
Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 100 gms
Condensed Milk - 50 gms
Water - 1/4 cup (optional)

Beat butter and condensed milk together and make it fluffy. Seive the wheat flour, sugar powder and baking powder together.Take the flour mix in a shallow bowl and add the butter and condensed milk mixture to the flour. Mix well and knead it thoroughly. knead well by folding it again and again constantly. If needed sprinkle water little. The dough should be soft enough. Set aside covered in fridge for about 15 mins. Take small balls of the dough and flatten it evenly. It is not that easy to roll it with a roller pin, flatten it with hand to even thickness. 

Use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes, or make small balls and flatten them for round shaped biscuits. Spread them in plates without touching each other and set it inside fridge. 

Heat the oven to 180 degrees for 10 mins. After that arrange the cookies in the tray (do not grease the tray) and cook in 150 degrees for 10 to 15 mins depending upon the capacity of your oven. When done transfer it to a shallow bowl and let it cool do not close the vessel untill it is cooled completely. Keep all the batches in the same way. 

Note: Before baking your cooking know about your oven thoroughly. 
         Make the cookies even. If you are making them in different thickness, bake them separately. 
         You can avoid using condensed milk if you dont have it. 
         If the dough is ready just with butter then avoid adding water.
