Eggless Almond Cardamom Cookies


I'm looking for a eggless cookie recipe which are simple to bake eggless and comparatively healthy and can be done with easily available ingredients .I found this recipe from Manjula’s Kitchen. I made few changes of my own. Instead of sliced almonds I used Almond meal/Flour. Along with almonds I added few cashew and Pistachios too! Roast ¼ cup almonds, few cashew and Pistachios in the oven Cool and then grind with a food processor till they are fine. I`m happy to say that this was a great success, Roasted nuts and cardamom  makes cookies most delicious crunchy and fragrant..
