Whole Wheat snickerdoodles...

Last Friday, we decided to try to make some Whole Wheat Snicker doodles. I have always loved Snicker doodles, what's not to love??? Papa Bear and a few of the A's have always hated them, so I received mixed reviews when I suggested we make them! Papa Bear came home from work that night, and I showed him the cookies, and said do you like Snicker doodles? Papa Bear's response, No not really, but I like Peanut Butter Cookies!! {I believe there was a HINT HINT added there!!} Well he broke down, and started craving something sweet and yummy!!! He ate one and said, WOW those are pretty good. He ate another and said, Yeah those are good!!! {Okay maybe not his exact words, but it was close!!}
So here's the recipe I used, I found it on All Recipes. It's called
Here's the original recipe. I will add the changes I made to them after the recipe.
Original Recipe Yield 5 dozen

1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 egg white
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter or margarine until fluffy. Add egg and egg white; beat well. Stir together flours, soda, and salt; beat into creamed mixture.
In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies will puff up and flatten as they bake. Cool on wire racks.
My Variations:
I used Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, and Spelt Flour... absolutely no white flour. I have always wondered why people {and companies} insist on titling recipes whole wheat when they are not!??!
I used Pure Cane Sugar
I also added some vanilla
And I added 1/2 t Cream of Tartar. I read this in the reviews section.
These were very yummy!! The little A's especially enjoyed rolling them in the sugar and cinnamon. Of course when they were finished they also enjoyed licking their fingers!!
