I would love to try to make these cookies as gifts for two neighbors. The husbands have diabetes mellitus. Can I substitute 1 1/2 cup monk fruit sweetener for the 1/1/2 cup honey??
Thank you for your help. Diana Sarkar
Hi Diana, I have never used monk fruit sweetener. If the consistency is similar to honey and you’ve used it as a substitute before, I’m sure it would be just fine.
What is the weight of one cup of the Whole Grain Einkorn Flour? I prefer measuring flour by weight than by volume. Thanks!
A cup of freshly milled einkorn flour will weigh about 3.5oz. Of course, if your flour has been sitting, it may be different. If we are using whole grain in a recipe, we grind it ourselves and that’s what it comes to.
May sound like a silly question but purée is made of cooked (boiled? Baked? Microwaved?) pumpkin?
Hi Rita, you can use canned from the grocery store or make it yourself. I would bake it and then puree it in a food process or high power blender. I haven’t tried boiling or the microwave, but it could work.
