These Snickerdoodles came from Better Home and Garden's Limited Edition "Celebrating the Promise" cookbook. This, too, was a Christmas present from my parents a few years back. Maybe they were trying to tell me something?
These are the ingredients I used. The recipe called for 1/4 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar. What in the world is Cream of Tartar? I ignored this ingredient. It sounds like Tartar Sauce, and I don't think that goes well with cookies.
I blended 1 stick of softened butter, 1 cup of sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
Then, I added 1 and 1/2 cups of all purpose flour and blended again.
Have I mentioned that I LOVE my mixer? :)
The dough was a little thicker than normal cookie dough. I refrigerated it for an hour.
I mixed together 2 Tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. I rolled the dough into balls and covered them in this mixture.
I baked them on 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
This was a great, easy, quick cookie to make. The edges were crunchy, and the inside was warm and chewy. I WILL be making these again.
Our football dinner consisted of raw carrots and celery, William's famous wings, and pizza!
Unfortunately, the Falcons didn't pull through a win. Sad.
This was my first plate. I snacked on a large handful of baby carrots before dinner.
Of course, I went back for more pizza and a couple more wings. :) The wings may have been William's best ever!
