Snickerdoodles

My mom and I used to make these cookies all the time when I was younger.. I had forgotten all about them, until I found her recipe in an old cook book.

I made them last night, and they're just as good as I remembered! I'm sure most of you have made them before, but I just felt like sharing the recipe anyways!

Snickerdoodles

1/2 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg (beaten)
1 1/2 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix allingredients well. Drop by teaspoonful on slightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 min. These cookies will puff up at first then flatten out with crinkled edges.

*Mix 3 tablespoons sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle ontop of cookies after removing from oven!*

Those are my husband's favorite! We've been searching for the "perfect" snickerdoodle recipe where they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I'll have to try yours and see if it's better than the one we have.

That is the way we like them too. It'd been so long since i'd made them, I wasn't sure when to pull them out of the oven. My first bath I baked for almos the full 10 min. and they're mostly all crunchy. So the second batch I pulled them out at 8 min. and they were PERFECT!! Let me know how they turn out for you!

When I make snickerdoodles, I shape the batter into balls about the size of a walnut and then roll them in the cinnamon sugar before baking. Just adds a nice little sugary boost to each bite.

I also do that with peanut butter cookies, and molasses cookies - it's amazing what a difference it makes (no cinnamon, though - just sugar.)
