Can cookies be healthy? they can be made so, with a little bit of thought. Chock-full of raisins and nuts, the whole wheat, raisin and walnut cookies are a concentrated source of calcium, iron and fibre. These healthful cookies are a great accompaniment for a hot cup of tea or coffee; however children might need a bit of a push to eat these cookies as the recipe uses less butter and sugar to make the cookies healthier and less fattening. The way out is to prod them to dunk a cookie in a cup of hot milk, which makes the whole experience wonderful for kids too!
- Mix the flour, butter and sugar with your fingertips till the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
- Add the walnuts and raisins and knead it into a dough using water.
- Cover with a plastic film and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
- Roll out into a sheet of 6 mm (¼") thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out round cookies approx. 37 mm (1½") in diameter.
- Re-roll the remaining scraps of dough to make more cookies and place them all on a greased baking tray.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 25 minutes or till the cookies are golden brown.
- Cool and store in an air-tight container.
