Eggless Cashew and Pistachio Cookies.

It's great fun being part of the Recipe swap group in facebook where like minded food bloggers join forces and create a recipe from their allocated partners blog. It's a great way to make new friends and discover new  recipes from around the world. For the July challenge recipe swap,  I was allocated  Pavani's  blog  -Pavanis Kitchen . Looking through the blog I found many lovely recipes. I finally settled for Eggless Cashew and Pistachio cookies as I was having friends for tea and wanted to  serve home baked cookies. 

 The  only changes I made was that I added 1/2 teaspoon of rose essence to the dough, recipe turned out absolutely delicious. Since I used whole wheat flour, the cookies had a slight texture in them, which I liked but you can make the cookies using plain flour too. You can also make cookies with oats, I love these Vegan Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

The cookies went really well with  Jasmine tea and the flavours complimented each other beautifully. I also made chocolate chip cookies and Spiral cookies to serve at the tea party.
