Today I will be sharing a Cake Cookie recipe, you might be saying HUH!  These cookies are like cake, they are so moist and good.  I call them Whole Wheat Vanilla Citrus Cake Cookies.


1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp orange zest
2 tbsp buttermilk *I make my own~ vinegar and fat free milk*
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla

Mix wet ingredients, and them add in you dry ingredients, you will notice that the texture of the batter is like a cake batter, that is fine that's why I call these cake like cookies.

Use a small scoop  and put 12-15 scoops on your parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake on 350 for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.  Your kitchen will smell like an orange orchard when they come out the oven.
Once they are cooled, you can leave as they are, or do like I did and make them all neat and the same size, and cut out with a round cutter.  These cake like cookies can also be used to make cookie sandwiches, where you pipe frosting on one side of cookie and put another on top.
