Mixed Nuts Cookies - Eggless Baking

Makes 10-12
Every weekend I break my head on what evening snack to prepare,which involves no frying and not much of sugar.This weekend I settled on these beautiful cookies:) These are very easy to bake cookies,apart from the initial preparation it takes less than 10 minutes to make.Nuts form a major part of these cookies and the recipe uses very little sugar. I've used Hazelnuts,Almonds and Walnuts ,you could replace this with any nuts of your choice.It does call for some butter which makes it very soft.The gentle flavors of the toasted nuts and brown sugar makes this a great tea time snack !

You'll need:

Almonds - 40 g(skinless & chopped)
Hazelnuts - 40 g(skinless & chopped)
Walnuts - 40 g
Salt - a pinch
Brown sugar - 3 tbsp
All purpose Flour - 120 g
Water - 1 tbsp
Butter - 100 g
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp


 Method:
-In a small bowl,mix the Flour and the salt.
-Pre-heat an oven to 350°F/175°C. Place the nuts in three heaps separately on a baking tray lined with a baking paper and let the nuts toast for 10 minutes.After 10 minutes remove the tray from the oven and  let the nuts cool slightly.
-To a blender with metal blades,add the nuts and the sugar and grind until the nuts are powdered finely.
-Cut the cold butter into pieces.Add the butter and pulse just until the whole mixture is creamy,with the butter well incorporated.Add the water and vanilla essence and pulse for 3-4 seconds.
-Open the lid of the blender and scrape the sides.Then add the flour and just pulse until the flour is well incorporated into the mixture.Don't over mix.
-Remove the contents to a small bowl and make 10 - 12 small patties out of it.Arrange them on a baking paper lined baking tray such that they are evenly spaced.




-Pre-heat the oven to 350°F/175°C.Bake the biscuits from 30 - 40 minutes,until they are golden brown.The baking time may vary from oven to oven.I have an OTG and it takes almost 35 minutes for the centers of the cookie to get well baked.
-After the baking time,remove them from the oven and let them cool.They harden on cooling.They taste great when they are completely cooled.They can be stored in an airtight container for a month.
