Snickerdoodles

I always associate snickerdoodles with Christmas. I'm sure my mom baked them at other times of the year, but I generally only make them at Christmas. It's one of my favorite comfort-food cookies, but the rest of my family doesn't love them. I try to bake them when we're taking cookies to a potluck or something, so I can have a few and give away the rest!

This recipe is from Betty Crocker.

Snickerdoodles

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose or unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Heat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Mix 1-1/2 cups sugar, the butter, shortening and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
  3. Shape dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Mix 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Don't forget that you can link up your own favorite Christmas cookie recipes in the Virtual Cookie Exchange!
