Whole Wheat Vanilla Sugar Cookie


Here is a wonderful tasting cookie, I call it Vanilla Sugar, but it tastes more like a cinnamon spice cookie, with a hint of orange, it is good and healthy.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 tbsp. fat free milk
1 tbsp. grated orange peel
1 tsp. pure vanilla
1 egg
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups 100% whole wheat flour

These 2 ingredients are for rolling the cookies in:
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375. In large bowl combine the first 6 ingredients until blended well. In another bowl combine the next 5 ingredients (sift). Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, until blended completely.

In a small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Place parchment paper on cookie sheets and place cookie
balls 2 inches apart; flatten slightly. Bake 8 - 10 minutes until
light golden brown. (Cookies will be soft in center.)
Yield 2-3 dozen
