1/2 c butter/margarine
3/4 c brown sugar (I use sucanet)
1 lg egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 T white sugar mixed with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Cream first 4 ingredients. Add dry ingredients (except cinnamon sugar). Stir to form thick dough. Roll balls in cinnamon sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake at 400 for 10 min.
These were more "gingerbready" than regular snickerdoodles, but still yummy.
