Since Spring is in the air, I saw fit to make some Spring Cookies in cute little shapes with Marshmallow Fondant that I made the other day.  If you missed that post you can find it here..  This was quite easy and fun.  The kids helped me, they were taking pictures and putting the coloring in the fondant.  So this is a nice family cooking project.

The cookies I made were my Whole Wheat Vanilla Cake Cookies:

Ingredients

1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp buttermilk *I make my own~ vinegar and fat free milk*
2 tsp vanilla

Directions

Mix wet ingredients, and them add in you dry ingredients, you will notice that the texture of the batter is like a cake batter, that is fine that's why they call these cookies, cake like cookies.

Use a small scoop and put 12-15 scoops on your parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake on 350 for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack

You can use whatever kind of cookie cutter you have, I used spring cookie cutters because of the season, cut the cookie out, and also the marshmallow fondant, so they match.  Place the fondant on top of the cookie and there you have it COLORFUL SPRING COOKIES!
