Whole wheat flour gives these cookies an appealing nutty flavor that's a nice foil for the lemon and sweet spices.

Ingredients

1
cup sugar
1/2
cup margarine or butter, softened
2
tablespoons milk
1
teaspoon grated lemon peel
1
teaspoon vanilla
1

1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2

1/2
teaspoon cinnamon

Tips  

After cookies are baked and cooled, give them character with purchased frosting. Use it right from the container or try one of these quick ideas: • Colored frosting: Tint vanilla frosting with food color. • Icing Glaze: Place 1/2 cup purchased frosting in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on HIGH for 10 to 15 seconds or until glaze is smooth; stir. Quickly spread over cookies and allow to dry. • Marbelized glaze: Spread cookies with one color of icing glaze. Quickly drizzle another color on top; marble the two colors with a toothpick. • Easy icing lines: Place 3/4 cup purchased frosting in a heavy resealable plastic bag. Snip off a tiny tip of one corner; close the top and gently squeeze the frosting through the hole to make thin lines, squiggles, etc.
