Snickerdoodles remind me of my childhood! I can remember making them with my mom and siblings all the time. And while I am normally a healthy eater, I do believe in indulging in a good treat occasionally. These snickerdoodles really do the trick for me. Plus, snickerdoodle cookies are such a good cookie to dip in milk. That warm, cinnamon flavored dough melting in your mouth. Mmmm....
But, I digress. (See my recipe below!)
(I think she knew I was taking her pictures... ha ha)
Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies to make with my kids cause there is something for all of them to do. I roll them into balls and then they roll it in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. It can create a little bit of a mess if your kiddo spills the sugar, but it also conveniently keeps my hands a little less messy.
They also help me criss cross them with a fork, just before placing in the oven to bake.
And who can go wrong with a fresh, warm cookie out of the oven and dipped in a cold glass of milk. Yum!
- 1 cup shortening or butter
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- 2 eggs
Set aside. Then, mix the following together in a separate bowl:
- 2 ¾ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon cream of tartar
Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together. Then, roll the dough into small balls. Roll the balls in 2 Tbs sugar and 2 teaspoon cinnamon, combined. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and if desired, criss cross dough balls with a fork like in the picture above. Bake snickerdoodles for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees. Makes 2-3 dozen.
And there you have it! Yummy snickerdoodles that will brighten up anybody's day!
