Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time12 mins
Course: Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 16 cookies


  • 1& ¼ cup wheat flour I used atta
  • ½ cup sugar fine grain
  • ½ cup butter room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • A pinch of salt
  • ½ tablespoon flax seeds powder
  • 1 & ½ tablespoon water
  • 1 & ½ tablespoon sugar for rolling
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder


  • First mix flax seeds powder in 1 & ½ tablespoon water, set aside.
  • Preheat oven at 190 deg C.
  • In a bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda.
  • Take butter, sugar in another bowl and beat well until creamy for 2 mins using whisk or spoon.
  • Add vanilla, lemon juice, flax seeds mixture and mix well.
  • Top with the flour we mixed earlier.
  • Mix well to make a dough. It should be a single stiff mass. If too soft or gooey, refrigerate for 30 mins.
  • In a plate or bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon powder.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and roll over the sugar + cinnamon powder.
  • Line baking tray with butter paper/ baking sheet.
  • Arrange rolled cookie dough in it with enough space to spread.
  • Bake for 10- 12 minutes.
  • Take out and leave it to cool in the baking tray itself.
  • It will be soft when you take out from oven, but hardens as it cools.
  • Once cooled completely, you can store in an airtight container.


  • Adjust baking time as you need your cookie. More baking time = crisp results. Less baking time= softer result.
  • Give enough space for spreading, especially if using maida/ all purpose flour.
