Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe

2013-02-16_10-00-40_689Since I had a hair appointment and a German Club meeting at the beach, I decided to bake some Snickerdoodle cookies for both occasions!

Turns out my hair stylist’s favorite cookies are Snickerdoodle! Score!

My hair turned out amazing too! (Mostly because I didn’t wait FOREVER to get it touched up).

So here’s the recipe that I used:

It says it makes 4 dozen cookies but I make my cookies a little bigger AND Mark ate most of the batter.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup shortening

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Mix 1 1/2 cups of sugar, butter, shortening and eggs in a large bowl.

If you need to soften the butter, about 13-15 seconds or so in the microwave should be good.

Mix until well blended.

3. In a smaller bowl combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.

4. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients into the butter mixture.

5. On a plate mix the 1/4 cup of sugar and the cinnamon together.

6. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and then roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. You can make the dough balls a little bigger if you want bigger cookies.

7. Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from each other.

8. Bake the cookies for about 8-10 minutes or until set. Make sure to remove the cookies from the sheet to either a wire rack or some newspaper to let them cool. If you keep them on the cookie sheet for too long the bottoms will get a little overcooked and hard.

Enjoy!
