    wowmarlene's Note:

    These cookies use besan/gram (chickpea) flour and whole wheat flour and contain no salt. The besan lends a somewhat nutty flavor, and shortening keeps the cookies soft.

      In the past I haven't enjoyed the texture of baked besan (rather than fried), but this recipe was great. As the other reviewer suggested, I added ground ginger and cardamom (and forgot the vanilla). This cookie is sweet, and I wonder if it would benefit from a dash of salt. Thank you, I'll be making these again!

      A very good recipe. Very easy to whip some up and a light, cake texture. I have altered it this way, for my own tastes, as I love the bite of ginger with carrots. CREAMED 1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 egg ADDED 1/2 cup finely grated carrot 1 Tb grated ginger COMBINED 1/2 cup besan flour 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1 tsp baking powder (I didn't use any vanilla but I did put 1/4 tsp gr. cardamom in the last half of the batter) Added dry to wet then followed your temp and baking times. A very tasty, soft cookie. A good breakfast cookie as you have protein and the energizing properties of ginger. A wonderful idea! Thank you for sharing, wowmarlene! :)
