Saw this recipe on Happy Home Baking's Blog ... Wholemeal flour is used, and I thought it is a healthier way of baking cookies than just using plain flour. These cookies were not too sweet, very crunchy, and the wholemeal flour gave the cookies a very unique flavor!
100g Butter, soften
80g Caster Sugar
1 Egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
100g Plain Flour
150g Wholemeal Flour
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
- Preheat oven to 180C.
- Cream butter and sugar.
- Beat in egg and gradually add vanilla. Mix well.
- Sift flour and baking powder over. Add wholemeal flour.
- Fold in gently.
- Mix and gather to form a dough. The dough will be soft.
- Shape into a round flat disc and wrap in cling wrap.
- Chill in fridge for 30 minutes.
- Between sheets of paper or plastic, roll the dough to 5mm thick.
- Cut out shapes using cookie cutters.
- Chill the cut out dough in the fridge for a while before baking them : It prevents the dough from spreading too much during baking.
- Dip the cookie cutters into flour to prevent the cut out dough from sticking to the cutter.
- Bake 15 - 20 minutes.
I hope the kids will like these cookies when they come home from school later ... it will be darling son KW's snacks for school tomorrow!
