Millet Cookies Recipe
Millet Cookies was the first on my to try list after getting millet flour.Hubby bought few millet snacks from his office canteen with that came along a pamphlet which included the varieties of millet snacks they sell and I saw a variety of millet cookies in their menu so that urged me to try millet.I am currently addicted to baking cookies, and love to experiment too. So this is another cookie recipe with no rising agents, I made this cookie yesterday and wanted to post it but thought I should wait to hear and see mittus reaction...I reserved just 4 cookies for her thinking that she will not like it and when she was back from school I gave these cookies waiting to hear from my surprise she just loved it and asked for more...And my calculation was wrong again....She thought it is the vanilla cookies that I usually make and asked me to bake a batch once again.Millet Cookies taste just like wheat flour cookies.

I wanted to replace sugar with jaggery but was skeptical to use it as such because of the impurities found in jaggery and I was not sure of the measures for adding jaggery syrup so I decided to use palm sugar and glad that I did, it gave a mild sweetness to the cookies which was perfect.Now you ask me for the recipe source?! With collars up I can say it is my own experiment oh yeah I have started to experiment recipes in baking also :)

Last time when I posted instant millet dosa using millet flour many asked about the millet flour, you get it readymade in supermarkets but if you can't find it you can make your own batch....Just dry roast the millet till golden  brown then grind it to a fine powder to make homemade millet flour, I am planning to post it soon.
