Carolyn says: "Did someone say 'cookie'? These grab-and-go breakfast bites taste indulgent, but they're made with whole wheat flour, nuts, and dried fruit. Drizzle them with a cranberry juice-flavored glaze."

  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Beat butter, honey, and salt at medium-low speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add whole wheat flour, vanilla, and baking soda, and beat 1 minute or until blended. Stir in mixed nuts and dried fruit. Shape dough into a large log (about 3 inches in diameter); wrap in plastic wrap, and chill 8 hours to 1 week. Cut dough into 1/2-inch-thick slices, and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes. Stir together powdered sugar and cranberry juice. Drizzle glaze over cookies.
