how to make healthy whole wheat sugar cookies easy recipe.
1 cup (s) all-purpose flour
1 cup (s) white whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon (s) baking powder
1/4 teaspoon (s) salt
1 cup (s) sugar
1/2 cup (s) of trans-fat free vegetable oil (60% to 70% oil)
1 large egg
2 teaspoon (s) vanilla extract
On wax paper, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a large bowl, with mixer on low speed, beat sugar and vegetable oil spread until blended. To increase the speed is high; beat until light and creamy, about 3 minutes, scraping side of bowl occasionally with a rubber spatula. Reduce speed to low; beat in egg and vanilla, then beat in the flour mixture just until blended.
Divide dough in half; flatten each half into a disk. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or until dough is firm enough to roll.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface with floured rolling pin, roll 1 dough 1/8 inch thick with a piece. 2-inch cookie cutters, cut out cookies as possible; wrap and refrigerate trimmings.
With lightly floured spatula, place cookies, 1 inch apart, on ungreased large cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. With a thin metal spatula, transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough and trimmings.
The size of the cookie = 1 serving
