Julene's Spelt Cookies

Recipe by  

"These are a heartier version of the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipes. Using spelt flour, which is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrate, is a very nice change. The cookies are easy to make and are delicious! Spelt flour is now available in many grocery stores and all health food stores. Try adding sunflower seeds, almonds, shredded coconut, or oats to the batter for something different!"

Stir flour mixture into brown sugar mixture until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and pecans. Spoon small amounts of dough onto a baking sheet.

Very very dry. The first batch I did, I forgot to put the cookies on the lower rack for the first 5 min and cooked them the entire 10 min on the upper rack and they came out ok (but very dry as I already mentioned). For the second batch I did what the recipe said and cooked them on the lower rack the first 5 min and then on the upper rack for the last 5 min and they ended up burnt on the bottoms. I would suggest making sandwich cookies with these and filling the middle with fig jam or mashed dates to add a bit of wet to them. Also, if I were to redo them, I would only cook them on the upper rack for 8 min to keep them a bit more moist.

Yum! I used toasted almond slivers (chopped a bit) and a 50% more vanilla and salt, though it probably didn't need it. For fun, I made 15 bigger cookies and undercooked them by a couple minutes. Thanks for a great recipe with spelt flour!

I luv this recipe! Great for us because we don't use enriched bleached products. I didn't use nuts or chocolate chips. I close creamy almondbutter, but I will be using this again! Thanks

Great simple wheat free cookies. Be sure to use unsalted butter, otherwise they are a little too salty.They are lightly sweetened, which is nice, but I may add an extra 1/4 cup of brown sugar next time.

I enjoyed this cookie. I didn't have spelt flour so I used whole wheat and milled flax seed. Tasty, crispy, and not too sweet. They spread a little too much, though.
