Wheat Shortbread Cookie

Shortbread cookies for tea anyone ! These cookies are made from multigrain wheat flour ( Ashirvad atta ), taste yummy and melt in the mouth !   

My mom sent me this recipe last week when I asked her for some baked tea time snack recipes 😊. The original recipe uses all purpose flour, I used wheat flour instead. 

Makes : Around 18 cookies 


  • 1 cup butter at room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup confectionary sugar 
  • 2 1/2 cups wheat flour 
  • 1 heaped tsp cardamom powder
  • A pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Cream together the butter and sugar in a stand mixer or using a spatula, until it is light and fluffy
  •  Add the cardamom powder, salt and mix well 
  • Add the flour and mix well at low speed until the dough starts to come together 
  • Place the dough on a surface dusted with flour and shape into a ball 
  • Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes 
  • After 30-40 minutes, take the dough out and roll into a rectangular shape of 1/2 inch height 
  • Cut out 3×1 inch rectangles using a knife or a finger shape cutter. If you use a knife, smooth the edges of the cookie using your fingers 
  • Prick each cookie evenly using a fork and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper 
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes until the edges begin to brown 
  • Allow the cookies to cool on a cooling rack for a sufficient time 
  • Once cooled store in an air tight container 

Munch the cookies along with a sip of your Chai 😊
