Whole Wheat Pistachio Cookies (Egg-free), this recipe is what I have been using since 6-7 yrs approximately. It never failed till date. 

Last week during spring break, one fine morning, my elder darling, (yes! my elder daughter.. 🙂 ) woke up in the morning and all of a sudden said, “Amma, I’m in a mood for baking today! And I want to do it all by myself without any help from you…pls pls amma… 🙂 “

I felt a bit surprised but happy from within that she is confident enough to bake by herself…

While I was cooking family lunch on one side.. she made these cookies (old recipe of mine)  on the other side of the kitchen. And here, a PROUD MOMMY presenting you the step wise photos which I clicked during my daughters baking fun!

  • Get all the ingredients to room temperature before staring the procedure.
  • I used Unrefined cane sugar (not white sugar), hence my butter-sugar mix is a bit brown and even my cookies.
  • Add the milk as per requirement only, I used 4 tablespoon of milk.
  • You can double the ingredient portions, for making double the quantity. It always worked perfectly for me.
  • Once cooled, store the cookies in an air-tight container and a cool, dry place.


  • Needless to say, these, Whole Wheat Pistachio Cookies (Egg-free), were crunchy from outside, soft as you bite and tasty at the same time.
  • I just cant put in words how happy & excited my darling daughter was, looking at the outcome. What do you think about her hard work?!
