But maybe the way we calculate it today takes into account that it's white flour?
Or do they make whole wheat these days the same way brown sugar is made- make white sugar and add the molasses back? That might make it an added part.


From what I've heard something like that.

Right. So not having a scale, I'm wondering if anyone's tried and tweaked and can share.
(As an aside, many poskim say that because of how whole wheat flour is made, 5 lbs. isn't 5 actual pounds and a problem re making a bracha. So it's best to use more, IIRC 1/4 of a 5 lb. bag. To be on the safe side, I make 1 1/3 times my 5 lb. recipe and I measure exactly how many cups are in the second bag and take 1/3 because I know it can settle.)

Do you even have to take challah when there's no water in the ingredients? Or does the honey count like water?

I'm not worried about taking challah. That was tangential. I just want to make about a third of the recipe max.

I made a batch using 2/5 of the recipe, and the results were delicious! (I had to taste more than one cookie, for quality control.)

A few notes, for people who are super-specific in their recipes: I used a cookie scoop (2 T) and got 7 dozen cookies. That's 210 cookies for the entire recipe! They do not spread much, so I was able to get more on each cookie sheet. I also found that with my oven, I had to rotate the trays halfway through to avoid the bottoms scorching.

I'll know for sure after the family taste-test, but I think this recipe is a keeper!

So happy to hear. Once the kids start eating this, they don't stop. It gets addictive.

Be careful with not to OVER-BAKE the cookies.
The cookie recipe is BIG but Feel free to halve it.

In a mixer combine the Honey, sugar, eggs and cinnamon till a smooth consistency. Add in the rst of the ingredients and mix well.
Refrigerate dough for an hour up-to overnight.

I made them without mixer and used oil instead of margarine. Came out delicious. I also tried it with margarine came out better.
