Well, I made Snickerdoodles this morning...I ate them for breakfast and lunch. In case anyone wonders how I keep my girlish figure, I eat dessert first. I eat less food that way.
Snickerdoodles are like a soft, buttery sugar cookie that is rolled in cinnamon and sugar before baking. Here's the recipe:
2 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter at room temp.
1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. With an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar until pale and fluffy (about 3 min.) Mix in eggs. Gradually mix in flour. Stir only until all the flour is incorporated.
2. Stir together cinnamon and remaining sugar in a shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1" balls and roll in cinnamon sugar. Space 2" apart on parchment lined baking sheet.
3. Bake cookies 7-9 minutes - until edges are beginning to brown.
