1 cup butter

3 tbsps sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon pwd

1/4 tsp salt

For almond chocolate filling:

1/2 cup ground almonds

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 Mix all the ingredients required for filling in a bowl and keep aside.
2 In a bowl, combine flour, salt, vanilla essence, sugar, butter and combine. Add 2-3 tbsps milk and make a smooth soft dough.

    Hi Sailu, long time no visit, and I’m the poorer I see ๐Ÿ™‚

    These cookies look so lovely in their festive wrapping, festive inside too! Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy New Year!

  • Padmapriya

    Hi Sailu

    I don’t like the taste of chocolate chips, so can I use raisins instead? If so, is the method same?


    • Sailu

      You can use raisins in place of chocolates.

      • Padmapriya

        Thanks for the quick reply

  • kessica

    can i skip the almonds?and can i make it only chocolate filling?

    • Sailu

      Yes, you can use only chocolate filling. You can try different options for filling.

  • Meghna

    These look fabulous. My daugher and I are trying them out right now! Good to know that chocholate chips are not necessary, as we do not have any on hand, but do have plenty of raisins and almonds and other dried fruits in the house. We will try making these as dried fruit and nut cookies, instead of chocolate.

    Also, just curious if you have any good recipes for a whole baked chicken. We live in the States and baked chicken is very popular here, but can’t find a good recipe that isn’t too bland! Any ideas?

  • Vidhya

BTW, am also from Vizag..Currently living in Qatar…

  • Deepak

    My 12 yr old Daughter made these and they were easy and fantastic!!! She followed the recipe and it seemed the salt was a bit too much – can be compensated with the sugar…
    We all loved it.

  • Hasita

    Hi Sailu,
    These eggless recipes are indeed a boon! I just tried this cookie recipe and they’ve turned out awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

    I used a grill microwave and to be honest, it was quite a bit of effort monitoring the timing. But anyway, its the final result that matters..Thanks so much for such a tasty and easy recipe!

  • Shalini

    waow! look absolutely Yummm….. i am wondering if the almonds can be substitued?? Also, would it taste as nice with dark chocolate chips and made half and half with whole wheat flour and maida?
    thanx. Heading to the kitchen to try the recipe out NOW.

    • Sailu

      Yes, almonds can be substituted with nuts of your choice. You can use both whole wheat flour and all purpose flour.
