3 c. white whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour (or a combination)
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
6 tbs. butter, softened
1/2 c. applesauce (or use baby food)

1/4 tsp. almond extract

Recipe Directions for Just Sweet Enough Cookie Dough

  1. In bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs, applesauce, and extracts, and mix until well combined. Mix flour with salt and baking powder in a separate bowl, and then add mixture to the wet ingredients in 3 additions, mixing well after each. Divide dough in two and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for an hour or so, until dough is firm enough to roll. Using a floured rolling pin and board, roll out dough to about 1/4 inch. Use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes, and bake cookies at 375 degrees F for 7-10 minutes, until they are just golden on the bottom. Allow to cool, and then frost with royal icing or sandwich together with ganache or marmalad.
