Tis the season for cookies right? Platters of cookies have forever adorned my holiday table and I love wrapping a plate of cookies up for my neighbors. The holidays wouldn’t be complete without these things.
Cookies and Christmas…. well it’s kind of like peanut butter and jelly! They are just meant to be together.
Hodgson Mill asked me to participate in their “Have a Grain Holiday” contest by utilizing their fine line of whole wheat products to bake a new and exciting, yet more healthy, holiday treat!
I thought for a moment about what I might want to create…. I had to go with cookies, it’s what I love most about baking for the holidays. My kids and I enjoy gathering around the kitchen island and rolling out cookies, then delivering them to friends and neighbors.
Also, if any of you participate in Cookie Swaps, wouldn’t it be great to pass out cookies that were out of this world delicious and yet so much better for you than cookies made with white processed flours?
So that’s what I set out to create!
