Notes

  1. To properly measure the flours, stir or sift the flour so it isn't packed. Lightly spoon into a measuring cup, and then level the flour off. 
  2. If you press the dough together, it should hold. If not, you may need to add additional water. However, it won't be a wet-type cookie dough.
  3. Nutrition values are estimates.
