Normally whole wheat cookies don't sound good to me, but I found that when I made this recipe with it that it was better than normal. I think it's because there isn't as much gluten in whole wheat that it can't become tough. They are yummy!
Combine sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Mix together.
Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture. Mix until well incorporated.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon (for 'sugar coating'). Make 1 in. balls out of cookie dough. Roll them in the sugar coating and place them 2 in. apart on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes until set. Once out of the oven immediately remove from sheet onto cooling rack.
