I'm so excited to share my recipe for whole wheat sugar cookies that is perfect for your Christmas baking!
Deliciously Easy Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies
1 cup of soften butter
2 1/2 cups of evaporated cane juice (white sugar can be substituted)
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup of sour cream
1 tsp real salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
5 cups of soft white wheat flour (pastry flour)
PLUS – several cups of soft white wheat flour to knead into flour when rolling out
Cream butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream together. Add salt, nutmeg, soda and powder and mix well. Slowly add 2 cups of flour at a time, until blended and all 5 cups have been added.
I placed half the dough onto a plastic wrap at a time and then wrapped in well. Once all dough is in the plastic wrap and securely wrapped, I then refrigerated it for 2 hours.
After the two hours, spread some flour on the surface of the countertop. Then unwrap the dough, adding one cup of flour at time, while kneading the flour into the dough. Continue adding the flour until the dough feels right, about 2-3 cups of flour total.
Then roll out to out 1/4 of high and flour the cookie cutters. Place cut cookie dough onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes at 375°. You do not want to have it golden brown. Cool on sheet for 5 minutes and then gentle take cookies off sheet to continue to cool.
Use your favorite frosting to finish the cookie and serve!
