Eggless Dates Cookies

An Iron rich cookie that the kids will love to munch on! I made this last August and somehow forgot to post it here. When I was looking up the drafts, I saw this one and decided to post it for the 'Bake-a-thon'.

Lil Angel helped me in stamping out the dough with a cookie cutter.She used all the shapes I had and really enjoyed the whole process. She was even more eager to see how 'her' cookies would turn out after being baked!

I used:

Seedless Dates- 10 numbers
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Butter, melted[not ghee] -1/4 cup
Sugar- 1 tablespoon

  1. Chop dates and bring to boil in a pan with 1/2 cup water for 10 minutes. Cool and puree.
  2. Take the flours, butter,sugar and mix to get a bread crumb consistency.
  3. Add the dates puree and knead to a dough. Roll into a log and wrap it up in a cling sheet and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  4. Take out from the fridge and roll out into 1/4 " thickens. 
  5. Using a cookie cutter stamp out shapes of your choice.
  6. Arrange on a tray lined with butter paper and prick with a fork.
  7. Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degree C for 15 minutes or till golden brown around the edges.
  8. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
The cookies are ready to be enjoyed!
