Why I Love This Recipe

I wanted a healthy but satisfying treat to accompany my afternoon cup of tea. This crunchy, wholesome cookie packs loads of flavor without a lot of fat or sugar. You can even substitute whole wheat for some or all of the flour. I like to use whole wheat pastry flour.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 2/3 c whole wheat or AP flour
1 c sugar
4 tsp chai masala spice mix*
2 tsp baking powder
2 T vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 cup coarsely chopped pistachios

*found at international markets; the one I use contains ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg.


Preheat oven to 350°.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.

Mix wet ingredients together and add to dry ingredients along with pistachios.

Add just enough water to moisten and form a sticky dough.

Knead in bowl 7 or 8 times.

Shape into 2 logs. each about 10 inches long and 1 inch high.

Bake 30 minutes, until light brown.

Cool 5 minutes and turn oven down to 325°.

Slice logs into 1/2 to 3/4 inch slices and spread apart on cookie sheet (standing up; don't lay them on their sides).

Return to oven for 20 more minutes.

Turn oven off and leave in oven for 10-20 more minutes or until suitably dry and crunchy.
