Saffron-Almond Flavored Cookies (Eggless)

saffron-almond flavored cookies

Last time when aayi told me to eat almonds, I bought a big pack of it, put it in freezer and forgot all about it!. I have been thinking to finish it off for a while now. But that didn’t happen. I tried to give those to Ishaan a couple of times, but he doesn’t like them. Then I made badam milk for him, but forgot all about it soon.

So last week, when I was coming home from Ishaan’s daycare, all I could think of was almonds. I wanted to bake some cookies. Ahh, it has been ages since I baked cookies. So as soon as I reached home, I baked these. I wasn’t sure if they would come out well. But they tasted heavenly, they were very crunchy and had amazing aroma of saffron. Even after almost 1 week, they tasted great.

1 cup almond flour
1 cup all purpose floor
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/8th tea spn saffron
2 tbl spn milk
1 tea spn baking powder

Preheat the oven at 250F for about 10mins.
Powder the almonds (I use them along with skin). Measure the powder, use 1 cup of flour.
Mix the almond flour, all purose flour, sugar, baking powder.
Melt the butter. Add the butter to the mixture. Mix the saffron in warm milk. Add to the mixture. Mix everything.
Make small balls from the mixture and bake them in the oven at 250F for about 40mins (time depends on the size of the cookies).

Makes about 2 dozen cookies
