Good Day Cookies
Like Britannia cookies but healthier. You won't be able to tell the difference!
- 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 handful cashews
- 1 handful almonds
Preheat the oven at 350ºF.
Soften the butter by letting it sit in room temperature, or heat it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
Add the butter and sugar to a mixing bowl.
Cream the butter and sugar by hand or by using an electric mixer until smooth.
Start adding 1/2 cup of flour at a time, and continue to mix. The dough should be dry enough to form a ball and hold its shape. If the dough is too dry, add a few teaspoons of butter.
Chop the almonds and cashews into small pieces and mix them into the dough.
Form small balls and place them 2 inches apart on an un-greased cookie tray or butter paper.
Flatten the balls and create any design of your choice on the cookie. I drew parallel lines by gently scoring the top of the cookies using a pizza cutter to resemble Britannia’s Good Day cookies. Be careful to not cut all the way through!
Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are golden-brown.
Eat warm or store in an airtight container and enjoy for up to 2 weeks. Happy baking!
