Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies

Over the Thanksgiving holiday we did some yummy baking. Ben wanted to make sugar cookies, because he loves to use the cookie cutters. So I made up a double batch of dough and we spent an afternoon baking and later that night we decorated the cookies.
By using whole wheat flour and flax meal, plus fresh ground spices as the dry ingredients, these cookies are way healthier than your average sugar cookie. We keep the sugar and butter the same, and use a cream cheese icing, and so they taste like regular sugar cookies, but the whole grains really boost the nutrition level sky high, especially when cookie monsters around the house like to eat ten or fifteen cookies in one sitting.
Here is the recipe (Again, it is a double batch)
4 sticks (2 cups) Butter
2 Cups white sugar
Cream sugar and butter together and add in
2 tsp vanilla extract
then add in
4 eggs
and whip together until the dough is light and fluffy

Then add in the dry ingredients
3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 C Fresh Ground Flax Meal
1 TBS sea Salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp whole anise seed
1 tsp whole fennel
10 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
Grind up the spices and add to the dry ingredients, mix well, then stir the dry flour mix with the butter and sugar.
After this dough is well mixed it needs to go into the fridge for an hour. I wrap it in plastic and let it sit and then we use lots of white flour to roll it out with the rolling pin before cutting out the shapes and baking the cookies.
Bake for 10 minutes at 375 F degrees.
After the cookies are completely cooled, frost with a cream cheese frosting and then decorate as you like with sprinkles etc…
And here is a clip of Ben cutting out the cookies with his different shaped cookies cutters. He also describes what birds are……

Ben lays down the law!

And the best part of all, eating the cookies!
