Whole Wheat Almond Cookies

For this months Sweet Punch challenge we were challenged to make Whole Wheat Almond Cookies.This was so easy  and not a challenge at all. I followed the recipe to the T,the cookies came out tasting good, but to add a little twist I rolled the cookies in cardamom sugar. It took it to another whole new level.
Recipe source: Manjula's Kitchen

Recipe makes about 24.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 teaspoon green cardamom seed coarsely powder (ilaichi)
1/2 cup unsalted butter (8 tablespoons or 4oz)
About 2 tablespoons of milk or as needed
Preheat the oven to 360 degree F.
In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt, sliced almonds and cardamom powder well.
Next add soft butter and milk to the flour mixture to make dough. Dough should be very soft.
Divide the dough into about 24 equal parts and make them into balls.
Press each ball between your palms lightly; every piece should be about 1/2” in thickness.
Place the dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet about inch a part.
Bake the cookies for about 18 minutes or until cookies are lightly gold brown.
After they become lightly golden brown remove the cookie sheet from the oven. Let the cookies cool down for two to three minutes before taking them off the cookie sheet.If you wanna some cinnamon sugar on the cookies,put the cookies in a paper bag with 1table spoon of sugar and 1/8th tsp of cardamom and shake them all together and your yummy cookies are ready.
