What is Einkorn Flour?
The best flour left! If you want wheat that has not been hybridized or subjected to modern agriculture practices that is. Einkorn is an all purpose wheat flour, that is an ancient wheat at 12,000 years old. Translated Einkorn means one grain, or single grain, as opposed to modern wheats which have 4! Many find it easier to digest, and it is soft and works well as an all purpose substitute. Packed with protein, vitamins, carotenoids, and minerals, einkorn is healthier then it’s modern wheat counters. Keep in mind it does still contain gluten! In our home we have been slowly using up our other flours and making the switch. If it is not fermented sourdough, it’s einkorn!
The Texture of Einkorn Flour
Einkorn Flour is light, fluffy and packed with flavor. Slightly golden in color, it is a tiny soft grain. In this recipe, we recommend sifting the flour. Some recipes call for sifting it twice because it is so small!
Soft and Cake Like Einkorn Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies are really easy and create a soft cake like cookie with less sugar then some other cookie recipes out there! They are lightly sweet and hold together well. Since they have less sugar then many cookie recipes they do not spread out as much when baking. You can leave them as they are for a thicker cookie cake or flatten them with a fork before baking. Just check with a knife inserted into the deepest part of the cookie to ensure they are fully baked!
How to Make Einkorn Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies!
Start by preheating the oven to 375 and letting your 2 sticks of butter sit out to soften!
First, sift the flour!
Then cream together to butter and the sugar and add in the flour and.
Once combined, mix in the remaining dry ingredients.
Crack some eggs, add in the vanilla, and line your cookie sheets! If you are looking for a cookie sheet, USA Pan is made in the USA and a safe baking option! No non-stick surfaces and steel!
Scoop each onto a lined pan. You can leave them puffed up, or flatten them with a fork depending on how thick you want your final cookie to be.
We did one batch puffed up, and one batch flattened with a fork! Both baked in the same time and were equally delicious!

The Best Mouse Cookie Bake and Read With Me!
When we decided to make cookies today we ready along with mouse as we waited for the butter to soften or the cookies to bake. The children did not want our cookies to burn like mouses. Memoria Press Preschool Curriculum has so many fun activities that even after we have finished the program, we keep using! The simple concept of adding a book to a baking experience was a great way to help the children to focus and enjoy the waiting. We love to incorporate related literature into our daily routines!
