Honey Snowflakes

Honey Snowflakes

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 egg
1/2 cup honey
2 cups flour
1 cup whole wheat flour

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, baking powder and cardamom; beat until combined.

Beat in the egg and honey.

Beat in as much of the flours as you can with a mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon.

Divide dough in half. Cover and chill for 3 hours, or until easy to handle.

On a lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 2 or 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter, cut dough into shapes. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake cookies at 375ºF for 7 to 9 minutes, or until edges are firm and bottoms are lightly browned. Remove cookies and cool on rack.

Frost if desired.

Makes 4 to 5 dozen cookies.
