  • I love baking cookies. The smell of freshly baked cookies is one that I’ll never get tired of. And eating freshly baked cookies is an experience I hope everyone gets to have at least once (hopefully many, many times) in their lifetimes.

    This fall, I went a little different from my traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe. I decided to bake up a batch of sugar cookies using some home-ground whole wheat flour.

    Made with whole wheat flour, this is a cookie the whole family will love.
    Ingredients
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • ½ cup butter – softened
    • 2 tablespoons milk
    • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons white sugar
    • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • Sprinkles or mini M&Ms
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    2. In large bowl, combine first 10 ingredients and blend well. Stir in whole wheat flour.
    3. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten each cookie slightly with a fork.
    4. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over each cookie. Decorate with M&Ms and/or sprinkles.
    5. Bake in pre-heated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

    This recipe can be very hands on, whether it’s rolling the cookie dough balls and flattening them, or adding the sprinkles and M&Ms to the top of the cookies, so it’s a great recipe to bake with the kids.

    First mix the first 10 ingredients together in the bowl. The extra sugar, cinnamon and toppings will go on later.

    Then, make the cookie dough balls. You can use your hands or use a rounded tablespoon to portion the dough, then roll it around in your hand to make it a ball. Flatten the dough with a fork or your fingertips then top with the cinnamon and sugar mix, followed by sprinkles or M&Ms.

    Sugar Cookie Dough

    Sugar cookie dough flattened & topped with sprinkles.

    Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.

    One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it has a more complex flavor than the traditional sugar cookie. The apple pie seasoning adds a wonderful hint of spice that makes these totally awesome for the fall season (or any season really.)

      I’ve made Sugar Cookies many times before,but these seem so much healthier than mine. I think the apple pie spice would add some great flavor to them!

      How wonderful and healthy! I love the fall colored sprinkles you added. It’s great when you get a basic recipe that you like and can add colorful sprinkles or other extras to it.

      I’ve never made whole wheat flour cookies before. Yours look and sounds pretty good. I wonder how my grandkids would like them. I guess there is only one way to find out. Grandma’s going to do some baking.
