Crisp Sugar Cookie

Continuing to share whole grain cookie recipes...

My favorite cookies are peanut butter or chocolate but I  also enjoy a simple buttery sugar cookie.  This is a recipe I received from a friend years ago.

1 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
Cream well.

2 eggs
Add and beat well.

1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp vanilla
Add and mix well. Chill for 1/2 hour. Roll into small balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes.


  1. Good morning, Gina! Hope this day finds you feeling much, much stronger. . . . . . . I love sugar cookies. When I first started milling my own grains, it was a revelation to me that you could make treats that actually tasted good, besides being good for me. We have become so accustomed to pizza crust made with whole durum milled at home, that when we had pizza at a restaurant on a day trip recently it tasted disappointingly bland. We wouldn't go back to all white flour for anything! ~Liz

  2. Yay! for whole wheat sugar cookies! Now I can say it wasn't MY idea =)

  3. Hi Gina,
    We made these cookies tonight and everyone liked them.We made your oatmeal choc. chip ones the other day for company and they were a BIG hit.I loved that they made such a big batch of cookies.Thanks for sharing your recipes with us.It is nice using ones that have been tried before.:)Nikki

  4. LizBeth -
    You make me want to try durum!

    Nikki -
    I love hearing that these recipes were successful for others! Thanks!

  5. HI Gina,
    Was wondering can you use this recipe for cookie cut outs? Would it roll out well? Thanks for sharing!

  6. Sharlene -
    I doubt this dough would work for cut outs. It is a little too soft.


I love to hear from you.
