Whole Wheat Flax Shortbread Cookies

1 stick (1/2 c) butter, COLD, cut it chunks
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons flax seed meal

In food processor process butter and sugar until a coarse meal. Add flours and flax seed and process/pulse until combined and a fluffy powder. Poor in to an 8x8 pan and press down. Bake at 325 for 20-30 mintues or until it pulls away from the sides of the pan and is beginning to get golden brown. Remove from oven. Use a butter knife to carefully cut in to pieces but leave in pan until cool. Enjoy.

notes: amazingly a huge hit w/ both dh and ds

Adapted from my regular Shortbread Cookie recipe

1 stick butter
3 tablespoons sugar

Follow the same directions. If desired add chocolate ships at the end.
