Estonian Rye Cookies

(The original recipe asked for all-purpose flour and brown sugar. They've been replaced with whole wheat flour and honey)

Makes 3 dozens.

Preheat the oven at 375 F.

In a large bowl, whisk together:

- 1/2 cup butter (at room temperature, not melted!)
- 1/4 cup honey
- vanilla (pure extract)

until light and fluffy.

In a medium bowl, mix well:
- 1 cup rye flour
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder

Gradually add the dry ingredients over the butter mixture. Mix into a dough, adding 3 tbsp of water.

Divide dough in 3 equal parts and roll each part into a cylinder. Cut each cylinder in 12 pieces.

Place on cookie baking sheet, one finger apart, and cook for 7-8 min.

Cool on racks.

They've been snowed over with cinnamon and are delicious with almond butter. And tea. Lots!
