    mianbao's Note:

    Flavorful sugar cookies made with whole-wheat flour have an appealing tan color. My family has enjoyed them for years. The recipe was originally from a small butter cookie pamphlet many years ago. The prep time does not include cooling and frosting. The cook time will vary depending on the size of your cookie sheets and oven. Please consider it only a rough approximate. The yield is 7 to 8 dozen, depending on the size of the cookies.

      Very good butter cookie, I halved the recipe and got 36 cookies.Baked for 14 minutes and tnen sandwiched some with the icing and left some single with icing. I mixed mine up in my Kitchen Aid and it worked out fine. Thanks for posting this tasty cookie recipe Mianbao!

      These cookies were quite easy to make, but I halved the recipe because I'm not the best buiscuit baker. They came out very nice and the colour was lovely, and I sandwiched a few together and only dusted half the circle with icing sugar so the brown could show. I would never change this recipe except to double it next time.
