  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together whole wheat flour and baking powder. Cut in butter with a pastry tool or pinch in by hand until butter lumps are no larger than peas. Add honey, egg, and water, mix until the dough comes together into a ball.
  3. Roll out dough to 1/4 to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into squares or with a cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are light brown.

I know this is a "healthy" COOKIE< BUT I thought it was really lacking in flavor. I followed the recipe with 1/3 of the dough. It was rather plain, so I added ground coriander plus sugar to another batch, ground cinnamon to another, and ginger and sugar for the rest. My favorite was the ginger version... like gingersnaps. I was out of vanilla extract< but would really have liked it to round out the flavors



Yum. It tastes really wholesome, and if you like the high-fiber taste, this is the cookie for you (don't add frosting). I reduced the honey to 3/4c. and think they taste great. You don't need to spread them apart so much on the cookie sheet, but they do puff up.



YUMMY! I added a tsp of lemon zest to the dough and had to use 1 cup of Agave nectar as I was out of honey; consequently, I added about 1/4 cup extra flour while blending dough to get perfect consistency - these were delicious - my husband enjoyed the hint of sweetness leaving them plain and my daughter and I topped some with a delicious lemon frosting and toasted coconuts & almonds. I baked these for 10 minutes and they came out perfect - soft, wholesome and super yummy!
