      I used orange zest because I didn't have lemon. They were still wonderful. I also use ground flax as an egg substitute (due to food allergies) and they turned out great!

      These were really good cookies! I am so happy to find a 100% whole wheat cookie recipe that my family will eat without question. I used white whole wheat flour, because of its milder flavor, and my hubby was so disappointed when the cookies were gone. A few comments I have is that I'm not sure I'd call them "sugar cookies", because of the spices involved, and the fact that cinnamon is included in the sugar coating (kinda like a snickerdoodle w/lemon flavor). Whatever you decide to call them, they are good. I know that these will be requested very soon, because whenever I can find one recipe that all 8 (yes, eight!) of us agree on, I know I've found a winner! Thanks so much!

      Best sugar cookies ever. Very simple recipe. Followed ingredient list except the cinnamon. The nutmeg gives it a really nice flavor so it should not be left out. I did sub turbinado sugar for the regular sugar and I didnt use the full cup; I think it was more like close to 3/4 but not quite as I didnt want my daughter having too much sugar. She used cutters and rolled them out and cut them pretty much by herself. The texture is great; not cakey but not rock hard either; more like an inbetween chewey/soft texture. I liked that they were not too sweet but it didnt taste like I cut back on the sugar at all. We left some plain and covered some with sprinkles. Cannot imagine making a different recipe with this being much healthier. Thanks for sharing!
