|Baking cookies is a great excuse to wear my Minnie Mouse apron!|
This year, for the first time, I made the cookies entirely with whole wheat, mainly because I've just plain ol' stopped buying white flour. I wasn't sure how they'd turn out, since rolling whole wheat dough is a little tricky.

The verdict? Awesome! Way better than white, as they actually had some flavour, other than just sugar-y. So my gift to you this Valentine's is the recipe!
Rolled Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
DirectionsCream the butter in a large mixing bowl.
Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl, and stir into the butter mixture a bit at a time, blending thoroughly as you go.
Pat the dough into a ball, cover, and refrigerate for at least three hours or overnight.
Lightly flour a cutting board, and roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut out cookies with cookie cutters.
Place cookies on cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 F oven until golden, about 8 minutes.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
