Ingredients: makes 30 small cookies

Whole wheat flour
100 g
Beet sugar
2 and 1/2 tablespoon
Almond flour
25 g
Olive oil
1 and 1/2 tablespoon
Salt

Steps

1. Combine the whole wheat flour, beet sugar, almond flour, salt, and olive oil and use your hands to mix together.
2. Add the soy milk a bit at a time and unify the dough.
3. Wrap up the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator.
4. Use a rolling pin to spread out and flatten the dough. Use a fork to poke holes into it (this removes the air).
5. Use a knife to cut the dough into 2 x 3 cm squares. Bake in the oven at 180 ℃ for 20 minutes.
6. Once they have baked to a light brown, they're complete.
7. Finish by coating the top with rice syrup dissolved in water and rum.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made a cookie version from a recipe for tart crust. The rum and rice syrup coating gives it a nice appearance.
