Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Cookies - #HAGH Recipe

This season Hodgson Mill is conducting their second annual "Have a GRAIN Holiday" Baking Contest, asking entrants to say goodbye to dense and unhealthy holiday treats by putting a spin on their favorite baked goods using high-quality Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flours. I'm participating in this baking contest and created Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Cookies.  

Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Cookies

Ingredients:

3/4 cup softened margarine
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cream of tarter
4 cups Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

Directions:

Thoroughly mix butter, vegetable oil and both sugars with a mixer.  Add vanilla, almond extract and eggs and mix in.  Sift in baking soda, baking powder, flour, cream of tarter and salt.  Blend well.  Refrigerate uncovered for one hour.  After refrigeration, roll teaspoons of dough into a ball.  Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes. 

For the icing, melt chocolate or vanilla almond bark in the microwave until creamy.  Spread over cookies and decorate with sprinkles.

Makes 6 dozen cookies.
