Sugar Cookies

There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked cookies filling the house to let you know that fall is coming. I decided to cook up the first batch of cookies using the freshly ground flour I made with my WonderMill electronic grain mill.

Then, you and the kids can have fun making the dough balls and putting them on the cookie sheets. I found that using a rounded tablespoon to get the dough and then rolling the dough in the hand to make it round helped ensure my cookies were similarly sized.

Then you’ll flatten the dough with a fork (or your fingertips, which I found easier) and top with the sugar mix and sprinkles (or M&Ms.)

Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes (my oven was closer to 10) and your house will be filled with freshly baked cookie smell.

These cookies are delicious. Not too hard. Not too soft. The apple pie seasoning really adds some depth. This is sure to please anyone and would be a great sweet treat for any fall parties.

Grinding my own flour and corn meal and baking with it has opened my eyes to a new kind of "healthy." It was great being able to use flour that was home-ground, by my own "two hands" (so to speak) using the WonderMill Electronic Grain Mill. It's definitely something I will continue to due as the family strives to live a healthier lifestyle.

  1. What did you sub for the all purpose flour? I have hard red and soft white grain.
