Preheat oven to 425F
In a large bowl, measure out 1 cup of white whole wheat flour (I use this a lot. It's fine like white flour, but it has the whole grain and therefore the nutrients) and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour. You can also use 1 1/2 cups of white whole wheat flour or your flour of choice. If you use only white whole wheat you may need a bit more flour as your dough will be wetter in my experience.
spices (I used 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon)
2 Tablespoons of sucanat
Blend the dry ingredients with a whisk and add 4 Tablespoons of butter. Work the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingers until it looks like little crumbs.
add dried fruit and nuts
(I used cranberries, but my favorite combination is dried cherries and pecans)
In a smaller bowl, place 1 egg
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
and beat these ingredients together.
Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until you have dough
Place dough on a floured board and work with hands (as minimally as possibly) to form a rectangle. In my experience it is okay if the dough is a little wet.
Cut into 8 triangle or the shape you prefer. I don't like to over handle this dough so I don't like use a biscuit cutter and rework the leftover dough.
Place in the oven for 12 minutes until they are golden brown and smell delicious.
Serve with a side of homemade hot chocolate and enjoy! In all honesty, Jude is definitely smiling at the marshmallow in this picture;)
