let’s go to the recipe!
- 350 grams of whole wheat flour
- 100 g butter
- 150 g whole cane sugar or white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tsp baking powder
- Optional: quince paste, sweet potato paste, etc.
- In a bowl, place the butter at room temperature with the sugar and beat until it clears its color.
- Incorporate the eggs and beat until united. Add the vanilla essence and mix.
- Add the whole wheat flour together with the baking powder little by little and with a spoon mix until it is well mixed and form a dough.
- To make the whole wheat cookies we have 2 ways to make them, you choose the one that is most practical for you. You can form a roll with the dough and cut small portions or make small individual balls. Whichever option you choose, place the cookies on a baking tray and with your finger crush them in the center to form a hole so you can put the jam you have or want, this time I used quince paste. To place the jam and it is easier for us, place it in a bowl, add a little water and take it to a bain-marie or microwave to soften it.
- Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Do not brown them too much, they will get hard.
