Baking My Way: Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies

These cookies would be great with frosting! They're a little dull and dry as they are. I think I would make them again if I could frost them but I was just following what the recipe said. Next time icing it up! (They are a good alternative to white flour sugar cookies!)


INGREDIENTS
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS
In large bowl, combine 1 cup sugar and margarine; beat until light and fluffy. Add milk, lemon peel, vanilla and egg; blend well. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; mix well. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes for easier handling.

Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 375°F. for 7 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.

  4. I'm sorry, I don't really make anything gluten free so you'd either have to find a dif recipe or play around until you find a flour that works well. i hear there are some rice and spelt flour that work well!
