Soft Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies

Soft Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies

I make these cookies for Thanksgiving and Christmas as presents. Decorating them in the colors of the season makes for a nice present. If I just would stop nibbling on them, my presents would be larger :) Cookies are not real sweet, but are soft and moist and perfect for tea.

Consistently soft and absolutely WONDERFUL. I have made them a few times and have successfully replaced 1/2 the butter with applesauce. So I use 1/4 butter, 1/4 c. applesauce. They are still soft and irresistible. I also made the apple pie spice mix with 1/4 c. cinnamon, 1 Tbsp. allspice, 2 tsp. each nutmeg & ginger, 1/2 tsp. cardamom (optional).

Very good. I didn't have apple pie spice so I just added a dash each of nutmeg, mace, and allspice and a big splash of cinnamon. These were a big hit with my 4 year old. Thank you for a great recipe! Oh, I used real butter instead of shortening (we don't use trans fats).

This is an average sugar cookie recipe spiced up a little bit. I refrigerated the dough and rolled it out for cut out cookies and it worked fine.
