Eggless Sprinkles Butter Cookies with Wholegrains


Rainbow Butter Cookies
When the kid comes back from school around 3pm or 4 pm its an odd time to give dinner and most of the time we land up giving up junk food. This colorful wholegrain cookies are a double treat for kids as they are healthy and colorful at the same time. Wholegrain Flour mixed with colorful sprinkles, cardamom, loads of butter is made as a dough, shaped into beautiful cookies and finally baked in oven gives this yummy and drooling “Sprinkle Butter Cookies”
I use wholegrain rather than maida(plain flour) primarily for health reason and there is no compromise in taste if the ingredients are added in correct proportions. Sprinkles are just for attraction and since they already have sugar content I reduced the actual sugar quantity so that the taste is balanced. To put it in simple way this is the regular nan kattai biscuit but wholegrain flour and sprinkles.

Notes:
Make sure the cookies are in equal size as the baking time varies based on the size.
You may use plain flour if you don’t have wholegrain flour.
Don’t worry on the small cracks in the cookies, they will be still crispier.
Sprinkles will already have sugar added hence do not add more sugar than given.
