sunday sweets {snickerdoodles}

Nothing too fancy today, but still absolutely delicious. Now, my all time favorite cookie is just a simple chocolate chip, but snickerdoodles are probably a close second. Growing up, my friend's grandmother made the best, every time we would go over to her house, we'd beg for her to make them, and honestly, I haven't had any that have lived up to her's. However, this recipe is pretty amazing, they might even be as good, but I think I'd need to do a taste test, perhaps I can arrange that on my next visit.

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.
Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Blend well. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Roll dough in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.
