My recipe for Soft Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies is an all-time favorite family recipe. I love to make sugar cookies that do not need to be rolled out and cut. The reason I love this recipe is that I can use my purple (1/8 cup) cookie scoop and it makes the perfect size sugar cookie. I like thick sugar cookies because then they are soft, chewy and moist. I use my tart pusher to put a dent in these cookies like you would in thick molasses cookies or peanut butter cookies for the chocolate kisses candy to insert.
You scoop the dough and make a ball, and then use the tart pusher or anything that you have in your house. The bottom of a small spice jar would work great as well.

I love to use the purple size cookie scoop because it makes the cookie not too big or too small. Just right! These cookies are a fun family activity to see how everyone can “smash” their ball of dough.
I frosted them with my cream cheese frosting. I know I should branch out with a different frosting, but it’s still my favorite one!
Soft Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies
- 1 cup softened butter no substitute
- ¾ cup oil I use vegetable oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 eggs
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon Cream of Tartar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 5 cups freshly ground hard white wheat flour or white bread flour
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Cream all the ingredients together except the flour. Slowly add the flour until blended with heavy duty mixer.
- Use a cookie scoop (I used the purple-1/8 cup scoop) and place each scoop about two inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Parchment paper or Silpat mat works great too. Next push the center of the cookies as illustrated above with a small glass bottom or tart pusher but not all the way through. I bake my cookies for 8-10 minutes. (please note*whole wheat takes longer to bake-9-10 minutes).
