Snickerdoodles

1 Snickerdoodles (7)

After 35 years of marriage, I just learned that Snickerdoodles are my husbands favorite cookie!  Go figure!!

We tried 3 recipes and this was our favorite.

1 Snickerdoodles (6)

Cookie Dough:

1 cup of butter, softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy – about 3 minutes.

2 eggs

Add eggs and cream for about 2 more minutes.  Creaming the dough at this point will give you a soft chewy cookie.

1 Snickerdoodles (2)

3 cups flour

2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

1 Snickerdoodles (4)

Add to the butter mixture.

Mix until all ingredients are combined.

1 Snickerdoodles (5)

Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

3 T. sugar

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar.

1 Snickerdoodles (1)

Roll the dough into balls and roll it around in the cinnamon sugar.

1 Snickerdoodles (9)

 cooking spray

Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Place cookie on cookie sheet – don’t set them too close together.  You want them to have room to spread out without touching each other.

Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes, or until the edges crack.

Let them sit on the cookie sheet and cool for a bit before removing them to a cooling rack.
