    1. Hi Anon. Great question! Yes, you can use only all purpose flour. You will just want to increase the amount to 2.25 cups because it’s less dense than whole wheat.

  1. So, I noticed that in the ingredient list there are 1 1/8 cups of jam, which would be 18 tablespoons or one tablespoon per cookie. But in the instructions, it says to use one teaspoon per cookie. Which would be the correct measurement?

    1. Hi Diane. When you click on the recipe itself it is set to make 18 cookies. However, if you choose the recipe and change the serving size (which our system automatically sets it to 4 servings) you should see 8 cookies there by default. That will change the ingredient amount you are seeing. These cookies do have quite a bit of jam in the middle. so I would look mostly at your personal recipe card based on your desired serving size. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

  2. Am I doing this right I’m currently making batter but am I missing a wet ingredient beside butter??? Its not batter just crumble??

        1. Yes. It’s going to be a little more reminiscent of when you make a graham cracker crust than a smooth batter, if that helps. 🙂

  3. Do you think you can use all whole wheat flour instead of half whole wheat and half all purpose? Thanks in advance!
