• Snickersdoodles

    1 cup butter
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    2 eggs
    2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 teaspoons cream of tartar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Stir in the eggs. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended.
    In a small bowl, mix together the 2 tablespoons of sugar, and the cinnamon. Roll dough into walnut sized balls, then roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar.
    Place them onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, two inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Edges should be slightly brown.
    Remove from sheets and allow to cool.

  • @gash - my specialty cookie. I consider myself an expert 😃 in snickerdoodles. If you like them thin, chewy and crispy, I suggest folding instead of overly mixing as to keep air out of the cookie dough and then refrigerate for at least an hour prior to baking.
