Wholewheat almond cookies

When I came to know that this was March's Sweet Punch bake, I immediately knew i was going to bake these cookies. They came together in a jiffy and uses day-to-day ingredients always available in my pantry. They can be made just before tea or when you have sudden guests. Even though it uses simple ingredients, these cookies taste exotic with aromatic cardamom in them. I used a little more almonds than mentioned in the recipe and it gave a nice crunch to the cookies. I served them with tea and they got over in no time!
