Whole-Grain Cutter Cookies
Yield: Makes ~3 dozen
Adapted from a traditional sugar cookie recipe, these cookies are made with whole-grain spelt and barley flours and are sweetened with dates.
Blend flours and baking powder in a small bowl. In a large bowl, beat butter and dates at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add the flour and baking powder mixture and mix.
Divide dough into three parts. Wrap each part in plastic and refrigerate for 3 hours. Preheat oven to 350° F. On a floured surface, roll 1/3 of the dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Place on greased cookie sheets and bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
