Whole Grain Cookies

To make the delicious and healthy Cookies made from whole bean vanilla, you will need the following very important ingredients. Begin by gathering about 1/2 cup or 2.5 oz. of powdered sugar along with 1/4 cup of ground sugar. Next, take 1 vanilla bean and cut it in to different segments as well as trimming its ends. Then gather ¼ teaspoon of sea salt (fine grain). Next, take 8 tablespoons or 4 oz. of unsalted butter, which is cut in to different cut and is ready to be easily melted (room temperature) and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Finally, take 1/2 cup or 2 oz. of rye flour, 1/2 cup or 2.5 oz. of all-purpose flour and sugar/salt, which will be to taste for the topping.

Whole Grain Cookie Ingredients


  • 1/2 Cup Sugar, Powdered
  • 1/2 cup Sugar, Ground
  • 1 Vanilla Bean, Bean Form
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea salt, Fine Grain
  • 8 Tablespoon Butter, Unsalted
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla exteact
  • 1/2 cup Rye flour
  1. To make Cookies made from whole bean vanilla, start by collecting a food processor, and on to that processor add sugar. Along with that sugar add vanilla bean sections and blend them together (preferably for couple of minutes). After this, check to see if the bean has broken down properly. If you can see that the bean has in fact broken down, add a little salt to the mixture. Salt is always adjustable to one’s preference and taste. Follow this by adding butter and vanilla extract and blend the mixture together again to make sure the vanilla beans haven’t left any chunks in the mixture. This is important as this can have an unpleasant effect on the cookies later. If you find that there are chunks, blend again. Make sure that the butter appears creamy and light. Finally, add flour to the mixture and make dough out of it. This should be blended together for less than 15 seconds.
  2. Before moving to the next step, take a parchment paper. This is because the dough that you have just prepared will be a little sticky. Place your dough in the middle of this piece of the parchment paper and cover over it with another parchment paper. In the next step, start to roll out your dough and make sure it is one fourth inch thick when you are ready to move on to the next step. After the dough has been rolled out, place this dough in to the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. You can even place for longer, just remember to make sure that it is chilled properly. Simultaneously, heat your oven to a 350C temperature.
  3. Take out your cookie cutter next and make your favorite shapes out of it with the dough. After you have stamped out the shapes, lay them down on the parchment paper set for the oven tray. Make sure each stamp is at least an inch away from one another. Sprinkle some sugar and a slight of salt for the oven tray. With the remaining dough, make as many cookies as you want. Make sure the dough doesn’t warm up, put it back in the fridge if you want. Keep the cookies in the oven for at least ten to fifteen minutes and take them out when they get golden in color. Cool your cookies for a while and enjoy them with some low fat milk!
