I love cinnamon, yes I do!! These cookies are very cinnamony ( not a proper word, I know :S ) these are my favorite next to chocolate chips cookies. Snickerdoodles is sooo very, VERY easy to make, I know I almost always say that especially with cookies but really this is by far the easiest for me, the dough is just wonderful to work with.
I got the recipe from Betty Crocker, I halved it so that I can control how much cookies my family eats so they’ll stay happy and healthy, this is one thing I know how to keep it balanced; because you see, my kids especially, won’t stop eating these cookies ( or any cookies I make) until they’re all gone. My kids doesn’t have any complaints or any violent reactions (JK) when I say “sorry,there are no more cookies left” (because they know it’s true) than when I tell them to stop eating cookies. I’m so proud of myself lol 🙂
The recipe below just makes 2 dozen cookies, if you want more than that, feel free to double it, after all I just halved the original recipe and oh, I also omitted the shortening and just use butter or margarine ( or butter compound) whatever I happen to have in stock. One more thought on this recipe- this is a good way for me to use up my cream of tartar, I don’t really use it that much aside from making meringue which only uses a little in a recipe.
mix butter, sugar, egg..
beat it until it’s light and fluffy
add the dry ingredients..
roll dough balls in cinnamon sugar..
onto the baking sheet they go..
and into the oven for about 8-10 minutes
..serve these cookies warm with milk, tea or coffee! Life is good, enjoy every minute of it! 🙂
SNICKERDOODLES (Cinnamon Cookies)
adapted from Betty Crocker
Makes 2 dozen cookies
1 stick butter or margarine, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Using your mixer or a wooden spoon, cream butter/margarine, sugar and egg until light and fluffy.
Sift together flour, salt, cream of tartar and baking soda in a separate bowl then gradually add to the butter mixture; beat until well-combined.
Mix together sugar and ground cinnamon in another bowl; scoop dough into balls about an inch wide (ice cream scoop makes it very easy to do this) and roll them on the cinnamon sugar. Put dough balls on an ungreased baking sheet spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Cool for about 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.
