Classic Sugar Cookies

You can use either all purpose flour or whole wheat flour. I have made using either and they both turned up well.

Today am sharing the (recipe) and pictures of these classic sugar cookies using whole wheat flour 😀

Now before I share you the recipe, I have to remind you that everyone’s oven heat is different, so please watch these cookies carefully while they are baking as they can get too brown when they are made with whole wheat flour. Guilty, yep, I was watching Friends while baking so some batch are a bit browner than the others LOL

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all purpose flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 2 parchment lined cookie sheets.
  • In a large bowl cream the powdered sugar and butter. Add the egg and vanilla. Next add the flour and baking powder.

Working with half the dough at a time, roll out on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness and cut into your favorite shapes. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Cool and decorate.
