Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon and baking soda until well combined.

DIVIDE dough into four portions. Wrap each portion in parchment paper and chill about 1 hour or until easy to handle.

COMBINE remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 teaspoons brown sugar in a small bowl set aside.

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Place one potion of dough on a lightly floured sheet of parchment paper turn dough to coat both sides with flour. Place another sheet of parchment paper over dough and roll dough between the two sheets to ¼-inch thickness. Cut out shapes with 1½-inch animal cookie cutters.
