Whole Wheat Snickerdoodle


A little naughty, a lot nice. These are soft, yummy and if you decide to throw in the whole wheat flour, a "little" healthy too! Yum!

1/2 C shortening
1/2 C butter (soft)
1 Tbl vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 C brown sugar
3/4 C white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cream of tarter
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 1/2 C white flour
1 Tlb milk

You can mix up the flour a bit. 1/2 and 1/2 (shown) or 3/4 to 1/4 ratio or full whole wheat flour if you are not timid.

Cream eggs, butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla. Add baking soda, cinnamon, salt, cream of tartar blend until smooth then add flour gradually until well blended. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake 350 8-10 minutes
