Salty Tea Cookies ( Eggless)

Having a friend over for a couple of days each for the last two weeks was just so much fun, shopping, gossip, watching movies & ofcourse we had baking on the agenda . I was all the more excited coz I was having my first one on one baking class with her. My friend suggested we make some salty cumin cookies that she called tea cookies & I have had sesame seed cookies on my mind for a long time & what better excuse than having a friend  to try some new recipes > so for the salty cookies we just came up with a recipe of our own & they were just awesome as it is & with some home made guacamole as well.


  1. 1 cup all purpose flour
  2. 1/4 cup gramflour ( Besan)
  3. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  4. 1/2 tsp salt
  5. 3/4 tsp cumin seeds
  6. 1 tsp sugar
  7. 1 stick butter
  8. 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  9. 1 tsp lemon zest
  10. 1 tsp lemon juice 

  1. Mix together all the dry ingredients , flour, gramflour, salt , baking soda ,sugar & cumin seeds, keep aside
  2.  Beat the butter & cream cheese together in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light & fluffy. Add the lemon zest & lemon juice & start adding the dry mix a tablespoon at a time until incorporated . 
  3. Finish adding all the dry mix until just well blended.
  4. Roll out the cookie dough into 8 inch long logs ,wrap in cling foil & refrigerate for 15-30 minutes .
  5. Cut the logs into 1/2 inch thick slices & place on baking tray approx 1 inch apart.
  6. Bake on 350 F for 13-15 minutes or until the cookies turn slightly pink.

Next time I'm gonna improvise a little on this recipe by increasing the amount of lemon zest & lemon juice & ofcourse cut them with a cookie cutter .
