Whole Grain Quick and Easy Sugar Cookies

This little batch of Whole Grain Quick and Easy Sugar Cookies solves all your summertime dessert needs! 

They are just right on their own or alongside a dish of fresh berries. Fortunately, just as summer ends, and right about the time you need a cookie to send off to school for lunches or shared treats, these sugar cookies once again will come to your rescue.  

How to make, Whole Grain Quick and Easy Sugar Cookies.
Whole Grain Quick and Easy Sugar Cookies!

On their own, these cookies are tender and chewy, not too sweet and so easy to make. Ane they are the perfect recipe to bake for kids (of all ages!) and with kids, as a fun activity. If you are looking for a bit more sweetness in the way of dessert, they make a wonderful sandwich cookie with a bit of chocolate frosting or strawberry jam in the middle!

This recipe calls for White Whole Wheat Flour. While this might not be in your kitchen currently, White Whole Wheat Flour is a natural strain of grain and the perfect way to introduce your family to whole grain treats. While these cookies are a good beginning recipe to get the family to enjoy whole grain treats, they can be made with regular whole wheat flour!

  • white whole wheat flour
  • butter
  • sugar
  • salt
  • vanilla
  • baking powder
  • milk
 You will also need the following:
  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • mixing bowl
  • hand mixer
  • baking sheet
Now we are ready to begin!

    1. They are quite good and for some reason make me smile with their old time-y goodness.

    2. Such a nice simple recipe to keep on hand and whip up a quick batch of old fashioned cookies.

  2. I haven't had sugar cookies for a long time. I may need to bake them during this quarantine time.

    1. Right now we are busy Camp Hosting here in Montana, I haven't baked is a while myself. I enjoy these and it only makes a small batch, so it is easy to have fresh cookies in a matter of minutes.
