Eggless Basic Cookie Dough Recipe

For the past couple of weeks, I have this urge to bake cookies , not only for the Bake-a-thon that we are doing but also for the kids as they have been asking for different types of cookies that are not available in the stores!

But considering that each time I have to make the dough and then refrigerate it and then bake, I get lazy or at that exact same time something comes up!

So I wanted a basic cookie dough recipe which can be made and refrigerated so that I can make 4-5 varieties of cookies in one go!

My search landed me in Aparn'a blog and I have adopted that recipe and that is the one that I will be using fro now on. Yes, I have 5 cookies planned with this dough and I will be posting them one after the other..

The best part is that this dough need not be refrigerated before baking. So once the dough is ready, we can start off with baking our favorite cookie!!

I used:
Adapted from: My Diverse Kitchen

Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
All Purpose flour - 1 cup
Sugar -1 cup, measured and powdered
Baking Powder- 1 1/2 teaspoons
Butter- 200 grams
Salt-1/4 teaspoon
Milk-4 tablespoons +  a little extra

Take the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, salt, baking powder in a bowl and whisk well. You can also sift this mixture.Keep aside.

In a large bowl, cra together butter and sugar till light and fluffy.

Add milk and mix.Now add the flour mixture in batches and form a dough. Add a little milk if needed. Do not over work the dough. 

The dough is now ready....

These are the cookies that I baked with this basic cookie dough
  1. Eggless Butterscotch Cookies
  2.  Eggless Stained Glass Cookies
  3. Peppermint Flavored Sugar Cookies
