Description:

If you didn't already know Spelt is similar to wheat in appearance, but it has a tougher husk than wheat. Spelt flour has a somewhat nuttier and slightly sweeter flavor than whole-wheat flour. It also contains more protein than wheat, and contains gluten, so spelt is not suitable for a gluten-free diet. So, why not try it in a cookie? Make 24 to 36 cookies, depending on the size you want.

Directions:

  1. Melt butter and set aside.
  2. Blend together the cornmeal, flour, and the sugar in a bowl.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour, pour in the butter, 3 egg yolks, and salt. Combine well with a fork.
  4. Stir in the pine nuts & lemon zest.
  5. Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. In the meantime heat the oven to 350°.
  6. Roll out the dough to 1/4" thick. Cut using a 2 1/2" cookie cutter.
  7. I line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes and let them cool at least for 5 minutes.
  9. Melt chocolate on medium heat in a double boiler, or GENTLY in the microwave. Meaning do 30 seconds, stir well, then 30 seconds,stir well. Repeat until melted. Stiring is necessary as the residue heat melts the chocolate and if you over heat it will actually burn the chocolate and change the flavor.
  10. Spread melted chocolate on the top of each cookie, place them on a wire rack and let them cool and the chocolate hardens.
  11. I hope you enjoy a new way to get grains into you and your family.
