I have baked sugar cookies with…
- all-purpose white flour
- gluten-free flour
- einkorn flour
These sugar cookies are a tried and true recipe. Has worked for all three flours. By far the best flour is einkorn….a flavor one can’t resist and a healthy sugar you need in your pantry.
What is einkorn flour?
You may wonder.….why do I bake with einkorn and what is einkorn?
A warm sugar cookie is a treat everyone loves. And these einkorn cookies won’t make it off the pan and into a cookie jar anyway.
My kids grab them barely out of the oven!
Have you heard of sucanat? “Sucre de canne naturel” but the brand name is Sucanat (SUgar CAne NATurally). Sucanat retains the molasses, vitamins, and minerals. Here’s an article about sucanat.
Sucanat is healthier for you. Refined white sugar is stripped of all the minerals. We also use raw local honey, and maple syrup for a lot of baking, but a cookie is a little trickier when adding more liquid and the desired sweetness.
Making these sugar cookies with sucanat will give you a deep, rich flavor. We also use organic cane sugar which is a little lighter than sucanat.
After you’ve made these einkorn sugar cookies for everyone; when they are tucked in bed, you can bake your own batch without your hands in the cookie jar…if the cookie batter actually gets in the oven!
