Monday Morning Snickerdoodles
Good morning! The girls and I are on our way to visit a retirement home with our Faith Keeper's group. Some of the girls are going to sing songs, play the piano, or recite a poem. Everyone is also bringing a treat to share, so we made snickerdoodles.
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons white sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and blend well.
4. In a small bowl, stir together the 4 tablespoons of sugar, and the cinnamon. Roll dough into walnut sized balls, then roll in the cinnamon sugar. Place cookies on lightly greased cookie sheet, two inches apart. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass.
5. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Edges should be slightly brown. Cool on wire rack.
Have a wonderful start to your week. I'll be back soon with some Easter decorations.
