2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons wheat germ (my grocery store has it with the oatmeal)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (cold)
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat oven to 350
In a food processor, add: white flour, wheat flour, brown sugar, wheat germ, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Process for about 30 seconds until mixed together well.
Cut cold butter into cubes and add to food processor. Process for less than a minute, until fine crumbs form and the butter is combined well.
Add honey, milk and vanilla. Cover and process for about a minute until the mixture starts to hold together. Add additional milk, (one tablespoon at a time) if necessary to create a smooth dough. The dough will be dry, not moist, so be careful not to add too much milk.
Remove from processor and knead with hands to combine and create dough.
On a clean, floured work surface, roll dough 1/8″ thick with a rolling pin. Use cookie cutters to cut shapes into your dough or use a knife to cut squares or sticks. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1″ apart.
Bake 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
