When I have homemade lemon curd, I use it in my baking and enjoy the tangy taste. Usually I make lemon thumb print cookies by using All-purpose flour and now a days, due to my healthy baking concept wanted to use healthy flour. I thought of using my Oats cookies recipe as a base and proceeded. It worked out and I am sharing the procedure of thumb print cookies using lemon curd. I have already shared my home-made lemon curd recipe as well as oats cookies recipe separately in my blog. Link will be open, if you enter the highlighted words.
Now we will see how I made this.
Whole wheat flour -1 cup
Powdered oats – 1 cup
Sugar -1 cup
Baking soda -1 tsp.
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp.
Ghee /Clarified butter – ½ cup
Milk – 2 table sp to 3 tbl sp (to bind)
Lemon curd to fill the indent.
-In a mixer jar, powder oats, measure and keep aside.
-powder sugar and keep aside.
-Now take one mixing bowl, take all the dry ingredients like whole wheat flour, oats powder, sugar powder, baking soda, vanilla essence and mix it thoroughly by using hand ,so that flavor will spread uniformly.
-Now mix in melted ghee and bind it together. If it is a little dry, add one to two table spoons of milk, if it binds and holds a shape well and good. Otherwise add one more table spoon of milk and make a ball like Chapati dough.
-Now pre-heat your oven in 170°C. Line the baking tray with butter paper.
-Line your cookie tray with butter paper or aluminium foil and keep it ready.
-Take one small cookie scoop or a Table spoon to shape the dough into semi-circle balls and place at a lined tray.
-Make an indent at the centre, by pressing your index finger.
-Fill the indent with lemon curd.
-Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until base becomes light brown in colour and seeing some cracks around the edges.
-Now don’t disturb these beauties and allow them to cool completely. Then you can store this in an airtight container.
