Whole Wheat Maple Snickerdoodles


  • Makes0 servings

How can you not love something called a snickerdoodle? Just saying the name puts a person in a good mood. And eating the cookie is even better.


  • 2 2/3 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 tsp cream of tartar

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup butter

  • 2/3 cup maple syrup

  • 2 eggs

  • granulated sugar, for rolling cookies


  • In a mixing bowl, have your child stir together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and cinnamon.

  • Here comes the fun part. First dump some sugar into a flattish bowl or pie plate. Now, by hand, form the dough into 1 in. (2 cm) balls and roll the balls in the granulated sugar until coated all over. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving a little room between for expansion. Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned on bottom, but still soft to the touch.
