Yum: Snickerdoodles!

Hey everyone!

I didn’t have a ton of homework this weekend, so to celebrate I made snickerdoodles. Sooo unhealthy but sooooo good! I have posted the recipe I used at the end of this post. Just promise me you won’t make too many, or you might end up eating them all! 🙂 -Leah

Find the recipe I based this off of here.

Ingredients
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Cream together butter and sugar.
3. Add in eggs, one at a time, along with vanilla, until well-combined.
4. Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, soda, cream of tartar) in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredient mix into the wet mix in 2-3 stages.
5. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon together in a small bowl.
6. Use your hands to roll dough into little (ping-pong ball-sized) balls.
7. Roll dough-balls in the cinnamon/sugar mixture so they’re covered all the way around. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 or 3 inches apart.
8. Bake 7 or 8 minutes, until they have spread out and have JUST started to turn brown. Remove from cookie sheets and place cookies on cooling rack to cool and set a little. If they’re not completely cooked when they come out of the oven, let them cook a bit more on the cookie sheets, out of the oven. 7-8 minutes will make a nice, chewy cookie with a little crispness on the bottom.
