I saw these on Ordinary Life Magic and just had to have them… look at the last photo in her post. See what a good photograph can do to a mother person who is biding her time waiting for Hood #8 to arrive. But, never ever having heard of a snickerdoodle before I had to go on a recipe hunt. First stop: Family Fun, and as usual they didn’t disappoint!
Let’s Meet The Players: I doubled their recipe – seriously I knew one batch would never be enough!
For the cookies:
- 2 2/3 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 large eggs
For the Cinnamon-sugar mixture:
- 4 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons of sugar
Let’s Play the Game:
Step 1: Cream butter and sugar together.
Step 2: Add the eggs and mix away.
Step 3: Add all the dry ingredients to the mixture and mix thoroughly.
Step 4: Now you have a yummy dough.
Step 5: Mix your cinnamon-sugar in a flat bowl.
Step 6: Roll little bits of dough into marble size balls and roll them in the cinnamon-sugar and place them on a baking sheet.
Step 7: Bake in a hot oven, 200 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit), until your cookies are slightly brown. Ours took about 7 minutes. Cool them on a drying rack.
Make these, just for the smell of your home!!! I was sprung back to childhood!!! A friend of mine’s mom used to have a jar of these on her counter – well to be honest she had a jar of crumbs but if you got home from school first you could get lucky!!! Thanks Ordinary Life Magic for the inspiration and Family Fun for knowing that these cookies are called Snickerdoodles!!!
Just trust me. Try these!!!
