  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 large egg white, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg and egg white. In another bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
  2. In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients. Shape dough into 1-1/2-in. balls; roll in cinnamon sugar. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes. As they bake, cookies will puff up, then flatten. Cool.
