freezer cookies 1               A great little boost of energy before heading out to plant this years garden.

Use plastic bowl and cookie whips ( grain mill and flaker optional)

  • 1 cup room temperature butter
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour  (I used fresh ground)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups rolled oats (I used freshly flaked)
  • 1 cup raisins

Mix butter, honey, eggs and vanilla blend at about 4 o’clock on dial till light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients except oats, coconut and raisins.  Mix till well blended at about 3 o’clock then turn down to lower speed and add the coconut and oats and finally the raisins.  .  Divide dough in half and place each half on a piece of parchment paper shaping into log 1 1/2 inch in diameter. freezer cookies 2                                                                                              Another option for those not liking raisins is to divide dough in half before adding raisins and to half added 1/2 cup raisins and to the other half added an additional 1/2 cup coconut. Roll into 2 logs Split rolls in half crosswise and then butt together 1/2 of each roll so when thawing you have some of each.

 

Freeze for at least 4 hrs or up to 1 month.  Remove from freezer, slice as much as you want to bake into 1/2 inch thick slices and spread on cookie sheet.  Place in 350 degree preheated oven for 9 – 12 minutes or till edges are golden.
