Butter Cookies - for Lewis Road Creamery

A few months ago I had the Lewis Road Creamery team (as well as a few extra little helping hands!) join me in my kitchen to shoot three recipes. The brief was to share three of my wholesome recipes that little ones love and can easily get involved in helping to make. Simple, that's everyday cooking for me. 
This wholesome Butter Cookie recipe is incredibly easy to adapt to what you have on hand, or what your little ones love! They are the perfect combination of light, chewy, crunchy and – giant! They remind Ben of the cookies you get at subway, only these are free of gluten, nut and refined sugar.



Ingredients:
2C gluten free flour
1tsp baking powder
generous pinch of salt
3/4C LRC unsalted butter, softened 
1/2C coconut sugar – or muscovado or demerara 
1/2C honey – or pure maple syrup 
1 large free range egg
1/4tsp vanilla bean paste – or 1tsp vanilla extract 
Suggested variations:
3/4C raisins or
1tsp ground ginger + 1/2C finely diced dried ginger or 
1tsp ground cinnamon + 1/2tsp ground nutmeg
3/4C good quality dark chocolate chips 
Method
In a large mixing bowl add flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl add butter, sugar and honey. Using a hand held blender, mix on high for several minutes, until the mix is light and creamy. Add egg and vanilla to butter mixture and blend again to combine. Add the blended mixture to the prepared dry ingredients. At this stage you can also add dried fruit, nuts, ground spices etc. to the maximum of 3/4C. Fold mixture until well combined. Place a honeywrap or length of plastic wrap onto bench and transfer 1/2 the mixture onto it. Create a tidy log approx. 6cm in diameter. Gently fold the wrap over the mixture, pressing down to create an even round log. Tightly twist the edges to seal. Repeat with remaining dough. Place the cookie dough into the fridge for at least 3 hours to set, or in the freezer for 1 hour if required. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 180° and line a baking tray with baking paper. Remove dough from fridge and use a sharp knife to slice 1cm discs. Leave plenty of room on the oven tray between each cookie (these tend to double in size!) Place into preheated oven and cook for 12-14 minutes. Remove when golden brown on top and slightly soft to touch. Allow cookies to completely cool on the tray. Enjoy with a glass of Lewis Road Creamery Milk!  
Makes approx. 24 cookies.
Once cooked keep cookies in an airtight jar and eat within two days. These also freeze well, making them perfect for popping the lunchbox frozen. The dough will keep in the fridge for a few days and can be frozen for several months. Perfect for making ahead of time.
