Snickerdoodles

This recipe is taken straight from my Granny’s kitchen. Literally, she hand wrote the recipe for me from memory. So, I now have her recipe framed and in my kitchen. I love it.

These cookies are my absolute favorite ever. No lie.

You’ll need:
1 cup of soft shortening part butter (that’s bakers talk for Crisco sticks, use the butter flavored ones. Can find this on the baking aisle)

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups flour

2 teaspoons cream of tarter

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

Cinnamon ( for rolling dough)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift the flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt.


Mix shortening, sugar and eggs.


Mix all together.


In a separate bowl, mix extra sugar and cinnamon together. You will roll the cookie dough balls in this before baking.


Place dough balls on a greased pan. I patted a little extra cinnamon sugar on the center of each cookie before baking. Bake for 8 to 10min at 400 degrees.

Enjoy!
