recipe_ingredients
  • 2 ½ cups (9.2 oz.) fresh milled flour from soft white wheat berries
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • 1 cup cold, unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
                        recipe_directions
                        1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
                        2. In a medium size bowl combine flour and baking powder.
                        3. Using a mixer, cream butter and raw honey together.  Once the mixture is creamed together add the egg and vanilla extract and combine.
                        4. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat until just combined making sure to scrape the bowl.  Do not over mix.
                        5. The dough will be in several masses.  Scoop it out of the bowl and knead it together.  This is a slight kneading process - do not over knead, just knead enough to be able to roll it out on a lightly floured surface until it is 1/3 inch thick.
                        6. Cut dough into shapes and place onto parchment or wax paper lined baking sheets.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, allow resting for a couple minutes.  Transfer to wire racks to completely cool.
                        7. When cool, frost and decorate.
