Wishing Everyone a Happy & Healthy 2013 and hope u had enjoyed your Holidays and back to the routine :) The past two went smoothly and am able to cook and click few pictures for upcoming posts. Now i am having 5 recipes in hand and am so happy n feeling relaxed now :)

Starting the New Year's Special Post with a Guest post of my Intimate friend, Sobha of Good Food. I would like to present here few of my friends with Guest post as a celebration post for my Blog's Second Anniversary. So Stay tuned for more good recipes from more special people :)

Sobha, such a lovely and caring friend i got thru this blogging. After started blogging i never felt alone and worried that am away from my family & dear friends. Yes, this blogging gave me some handful of friends who really care n love me n am happy that i found them thru my lil' space. One such friend is Sobha, we never talked, chatted but have shared full length messages n mails :) She never failed to wish me on any special moments & occasions and me too. We have few things in common (lil' personal), may be that also one of the reason for our intimate friendship. Hope & wish to continue our friendship forever !!!

Would like to share few words about Good Food, simple and healthy recipes. Her space filled with all kind of healthy good eats in a yummy way. If u are looking for low calorie baked goodies, her space is one of the good choice to try and taste. I have tried her Eggless Mango cake & Eggless Carrot cake, both turned out awesome and is one of the popular posts of my space till date. Thank U so much Sobha for the great recipes.
For today's post also she shared a healthy n yummy Thumbprint cookies with wheat flour. this is one simple and easy cookies which is loved by both adults and kids. Hope u all like the recipe and request u to stop by her space for more good food recipes.

Now, I present U Sobha, in her own words.

Thank you Sangeetha for giving me this wonderful opportunity. Though I am not active in blogging now, I am really excited to do this guest post for you. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this and I am really glad to be a part of your lovely space J

Spicy Treats is a real treat to our eyes as well as our taste buds. I enjoy this space for Sangeetha’s great recipes and lovely clicks, above all the cooking passion and creativity of my dear friend. In today’s competitive world, where there is a scarcity of good hearts and true friends, I am happy to have you as one of my close friends J I wish you and Spicy Treats my best wishes and success for the coming years.

I am sharing an easy, healthy and yummy cookie recipe - Eggless Thumbprint Wheat Cookies or also called by some as Jam Cookies. It’s our recent favorite, so thought of sharing this one as my guest post. The ingredients are simple and less, can be made in a hurry too. I am sure kids will find these interesting and delicious, perfect for them with a cup of milk J I have used Red Rasperry jam here, but other options you can  try are Nutella or Peanut Butter as topping. Hope you will enjoy these cookies. 

Eggless Thumbprint Wheat Cookies /Jam Cookies

Makes about 14  cookies


1 cup Wheat Flour

1/3 cup packed light Brown Sugar

6 tbsp softened unsalted Butter 

3/4 tsp Vanilla extract

2-3 tbsp Milk

Jam as needed


Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and keep aside.

Beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Now add the vanilla extract and mix.

Add the flour a little at a time and beat until well combined. Gather this to form a dough, if required add milk.

Make equal sized balls out of the dough and place them on the tray leaving adequate space between them.

Using your thumb make an indentation at the center of each ball and shape the cookies with your hands if necessary.

Drop a little jam in each of the indentations in the cookies. Bake them for about 15 minutes. (All ovens vary, so keep any eye on them)

Allow them to cool completely and then the cookies are ready to munch on!!

Store them in an airtight container. 


* You can add white sugar instead of brown sugar and can also replace wheat flour with all purpose flour.

* If the dough is difficult to handle, then cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Then start making balls.

* You can also add chopped nuts or raisins while making dough or sprinkle them on top of the cookies before baking.
