Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Goofus

This recipe is from the premier issue of Taste of Home. When I first tried these I had only used whole wheat flour in breads. This is now my most requested cookie recipe. They are without a doubt my kids' favorite.

Mine cracked on the top and puffed but did not flatten. My 2 and 4yr olds both asked for more. I can taste the whole wheat in them but it's not overwhelming. Very tasty and the boys had a great time helping making them! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
