1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
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.
