Recipe: Snickerdoodles

Good Old Fashioned Snickerdoodles. Nothin’ like ’em. Nope. Nadda. Nothin’! Cinnamon. Sugar, Butter. All the major ingredients for holiday cookie swapping parties, gifts for the teacher, neighbor, or guy who mows your lawn. Yep. I haven’t met anyone yet that doesn’t like this cookie. Speaking of cookies – are you going to a cookie swap this year? Do people still do that? I haven’t been to one in years. But, you can bet on it – this recipe would be included.


2 3/4 cup sifted flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup soft butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Cream butter, adding the 1 3/4 cup sugar gradually until light and fluffy. Blend in the eggs. Add dry ingredients, mixing well. Chill dough. Combine the 1/4 cup sugar and the 4 teaspoons cinnamon. Roll a one inch size ball of dough in the sugar/cinnamon mixture and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool and enjoy. Makes 5 dozen cookies.

Ya’ll Enjoy! πŸ™‚
