Let's get started to make this super yummmy yet super easy to make cookies by having a look at the ingredients first.
Whole wheat Flour- 1 cup
All Purpose Flour- 1 cup
Butter- 100 grams(chilled,unsalted and cut into cubes)
Baking powder- 1/2 teaspoon
Milk- 2-3 tablespoon
Yogurt- 2 tablespoon
Sugar powder- 2 cups
Vanilla extract- 1 teaspoon
Chocolate chips- 2 cups
In a mixing bowl, with the help of a spoon or spatula mix together whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and baking powder.
Add chilled butter. Cut the butter into cubes and then add.
With your fingertips break the butter and mix with the flour. You can do it with food processor or a stand mixer or else get your hands do the job and feel the texture of the dough.
Mix till you get a bread crumb like texture in the mixture.
Add powdered sugar.Mix well with a spoon or spatula.
Lightly mix and then add 2 to 3 tbsp milk and Vanilla essence.
Mix entire mixture together to a dough.
Keep this dough in fridge for half an hour.Chill the dough.
After half an hour remove the cookie dough and spread some flour on the work surface as well as on the dough.
With a rolling pin, roll the dough gently. Roll the dough to a thickness of 0.50 to 0.75 cms.
With the help of cookie cutters, cut the dough into cookies.
Gather the remaining dough and again roll. Cut with the cookie cutter and repeat the process.
Then place the cookies in a baking tray lined with parchment paper and keep this tray in fridge for half an hour. This step will make your cookies more crispier and will avoid the spreading of cookies while baking.
In the meanwhile preheat your oven at 180*C for 15 minutes.
After half an hour take out the baking tray from fridge and bake your cookies in a preheated oven at 180*C for 10-12 minutes.Keep an eye after 9-10 minutes.If you see the edges are getting brown remove the tray from the oven. Otherwise bake more.
Once baked, immediately remove them when still hot and place them on a wired tray or rack. Let the cookies cool down.
Once they cool down at room temperature, place them immediately in an air tight jar or box.
