Celebration with Mango cookies on Mother’s day

At last the weekend comes when my daughter’s first term exams have finished. A great relief for us parents and happy relaxing weekend for kids. Nidhi was very optimistic to help me on this special day, had promised her she could come and help me in the kitchen. Of course i wanted some easy way for her to help me  baking was the only way i found other then making sandwiches.  So what to bake?? thought cookie or cake or pizza?? then we thought why not try some mango cookies  you know why right i need something for a event and a sweet to celebrate too! So we googled for some recipe there i found one at cooks.com. I have modified a little according to our taste. This would be my entry for AFAM hosted by Deepa from RecipesNMore .

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderfull Mom’s who have made a difference to the wonderfull ways of brightening our lives.

Memories of my mom always live with me, my Aunts, my Grandma and of all My mother in law have been wonderfull mothers to me. Thanks and love to all of them .

 mango_cookies

All you need: 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup sugar,1 egg,1 tsp baking soda,1 cup mango puree, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence,2 cups flour, 1/4 tsp ground cloves, 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder, 1/2 cup almonds coarse powder, 1/2 cup dessicated coconut, sa;t.

method: Mix dry ingredients together

mixing

sieve dry ingredients and keep aside

sieve

Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat egg, add mango puree, vanilla essence and mix

vanilla_essence

Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture along with almonds and desicatted coconut

Arranging

Drop the cookies on a greased butter paper and bake for 15mins until done. Nidhi was little fussy for dropping the cookies as she wanted shaped cookies made using the mould presser.I could not use it because of the nuts which would of course get stucked which made her little off. After the first round was baked she felt the cookies are not bad ma its indeed delicious lent a hand  to arrrange them  for the next bake :). This yields around 50 cookies for measure of 250gms of flour. The cookies were very crisp and delicious the flavour of cloves and cinnamon with mangoes were excellent.  Basically i have left only around 10 cookies.

note: I felt it was a bit  sweet for me and  i have used granulated sugar. May be the the mixture could hold more flour. i was not sure whether these should be made into a dough like for nan katai or like butter biscuits i maintained the dough to be semi solid state.  Next time i will try eggless version.
