Wholemeal Cookies

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!
