Whole wheat take on Melting Moment Cookies....

Everyone likes melting moment cookies. I love it too. Thought of giving it a try with whole wheat flour and worked out great. Kids enjoyed it too..... and very well as a mom that is the most important of baking you see. If your little ones make a face then is the trouble for you

Just pull in a few ingredients together and shape it . Bake them for a few minutes and you are good to go

Serves... 4-6 ppl
Serve option... Room Temperature

This is what u'll need....

Whole Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup or little more
Baking soda - a pinch 
Cornflakes - 2 tbspn(or as needed)
Milk - 2 tbspn

Here is the stir.... 

  • Add room temperature butter to a bowl
  • Whisk it with a fork till smooth
  • Measure  in 1/4th cup of powdered sugar into it. Add more if you like your cookies very sweet
  • Whisk it again till nice and creamy
  • Add whole wheat flour to the bowl
  • Now add a pinch of baking soda to this. The picture  does not show baking soda alone. Its little extra powdered sugar that my younger one added as part of his helping hand in making the cookies :)
  • Mix everything together with very light hands just to incorporate all the dry flour into one big dough like mass
  • The mixture will be sticky and loose but thats absolutely ok
  • Crush the cornflakes coarsely and set it in a plate
  • Pour milk into a wide and keep it ready
  • Pinch out very little dough and roll it into a ball. Drop it into the milk and then roll it in the crushed cornflakes to coat it lightly
  • The kids did the entire job of rolling and coating. They could not get a lot of cornflakes to stick to the cookies how much ever they tried dipping it in milk. Well that was absolutely ok for me. They just did not want me to help in making the balls :)
  • Arrange them on a baking tray
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees
  • Bake the cookies for about 12-15 minutes
  • Let it cool down to room temperature. Serve your kids and they will love it for sure

  • The dough actually will be more sticky and loose than it looks in the picture here. I ended adding a little extra flour as the kids found it very difficult to shape the cookies
  • Make sure you cream the butter and sugar really well till its nice and fluffy
  • Dont knead the dough, just pull the ingredients together so that you dont see any dry flour around
