Einkorn CookiesWe’ve been talking a lot about einkorn lately and wanted to show you a little of what it can do! After a false start with too little flour (who’s complaining about having to eat extra cookies?) we whipped up a couple of batches of our favorite cookie recipe (found at the end of this post) and brought the results in to the Mill for taste testing. Our team is always willing to try something new that we’ve come up with and this was no exception…read more to hear what they thought about which cookie won and to get the recipe that is sure to be a hit no matter which flour you use!

Ingredients:

-8 oz (227g) Super Sprout™ Wheat Flour

-8 oz (227 g) Whole Grain EINKORN Flour

-1 teaspoon salt(7g)

-1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast (4.5 g)

-14.5 oz (411 g) room temperature water

 

Instructions: Incorporate all ingredients until combined and mix for 2 minutes. Remove dough to lightly oiled work surface and perform a stretch and fold. Keep covered and continue to stretch and fold every 5 minutes until 4 total stretch and folds have been completed. (These intervals can be extended up to 20 minutes.) After the final stretch and fold, cover and let rise for 60-90 minutes. Shape for sandwich or hearth baking, cover and let rise for 60-80 minutes. For hearth bread, bake at 450°F with steam for 30-35 minutes. For a sandwich loaf bake at 375°F for 45-55 minutes.
