Eggless Strawberry Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

Eggless Strawberry Nutella Thumbprint Cookies
Strawberry and Nutella is my favourite combination. The best part of this cookie is using of fresh strawberries. Nutella can also be replaced by your favourite jam.

    2. Hi Nitya, so I tried these with whole wheat. The taste is awesome, however, they all turned brown like the regular cookie and weren't the nice pink colour like yours :( maybe because of the whole wheat I don't know. Will try with maida next time, just for me to see how they turn out. :)
