Savoury turmeric cookies

30 minutes - 16 servings 1w

Sweet and savoury turmeric spiced cookies, are as delicious as they sound. These yellow treats will help brighten up cold, and grey winter days.

I did say I liked cooking by colour, this is what motivated this recipe.

Turmeric powder is often used as a dye for clothes, and thusly will make your cookies very yellow!

These cookies have the right amount of sweet.

I had some leftover spelt flour in my cupboard, a lonely portion that had been forgotten, hidden away under bags of rice flour. Of course, this recipe can be made without it, or by replacing it with whole wheat flour.

I suggest pairing these with tea, i always drink a ton of it come February. It's the toughest month to go through, temperature is still in the -15C average here in Montreal. Can't go grocery shopping without my hands and feet freezing over.

Hopefully these tea-side treats will help brighten your day!
