success in the form of whole wheat sugar cookies (is that a paradox?)

mmm. Also, for those of you out there wondering, you CAN substitute powdered sugar if you don't have granulated sugar on top of the cookies. They just don't mix well with the cinnamon but still taste fabulous! I also made whole wheat bread...

Thank you, cooks.com!
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. grated orange peel
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 c. whole wheat flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl combine first 10 ingredients; blend well. (Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.) Stir in flour. Combine sugar and cinnamon.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart; flatten slightly. Bake 8- 10 minutes until light golden brown. (Cookies will be soft in center.) Yield 2-3 dozen cookies.
