WHOLE WHEAT FRUIT N’ NUT COOKIES

For me, the morning tea does not complete without cookies or biscuits and if the cookies are homemade, I fly high. I baked these cookies yesterday with whole wheat flour, nuts and dried berries. Though cookies made with whole wheat flour are not too fine and smooth in texture when compared with fine flour(maida) cookie. Yet I am satisfied with them as these are healthier. One more change was done that I replaced butter with ghee(clarified butter) and this decision was good as the ghee makes them crispier and fills an earthy aroma in the cookies which I love the most. Nuts give them a crunch and the dried fruits add sweet-sour flavours
