Sassy Anne's Whole Grain Gingerbread Cookies
2 1/2 Cup. Turkey Red Whole Wheat flour
1/2 C. ground flax
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp grated orange rind
1/2 C butter or oil
1/4 C water
1 egg
1/4 C molasses
1/4 C honey
Combine wet then dry ingredients.  Dough may be stiff (mine was not).  Refrigerate.for 15-30 minutes or more.
Roll dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut cookies as desired.  Bake 350 for 10-12 minutes.
These cookies are not very sweet.  If you want a sweeter cookie I would use brown sugar in place of the honey and increase to 1/2 cup.
But the frosting will sweeten up the cookies.
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
