Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie! When I saw this recipe that used whole wheat flour, I knew I had to try it. The dough was very easy to handle and hardly any difference (from the original)in the cooking time. My whole family loved these cookies! The whole wheat flour gives this cookie a wonderful nutty flavor!! YUMMY!


Great cookies. Light tasting, sweet, and they look great. I am not a baker, and they were pretty foolproof for someone like me! I used entirely whole wheat flour, and they were delicious.


These cookies have an intriguing cinnamon aftertaste that will make you want to try another right away! I added 1 tsp cream of tarter as per other snickerdoodle recipes (therefore approximating adding baking powder) to give the cookies a nice rise before they fall into their familiar crackle-topped shape. They're warm and soft right out of the oven and become more crisp/crunchy after they cool down. Very good!
