I like the name snickerdoodle because it’s cute and funny, although it does not sound appetizing in the least.
But I think most people will agree that snickerdoodles are actually super appetizing.
I may or may not have already eaten like, 10 of them.
These cookies are a family recipe, and they’re by far my brother’s favorite. He asks me to make them whenever I bake, and they’re gone in just a few minutes. And I normally do make them because they’re sooooo easy.
However, I will warn you that they have shortening in them. I am totally against shortening in almost all cases, but not in a few family recipes (where shortening is used a lot). The shortening makes these cookies chewy and gives them a great texture, so just go ahead and trust me on this, okay?
I wouldn’t give you guys any recipe that wasn’t amazing, I promise.
Cause you guys are da besss.
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. shortening
2 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. sugar mixed with 1 Tbs. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350*. Whisk together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. In a mixing bowl, cream sugar, butter and shortening until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Gradually mix in flour mixture. Form into 1 inch balls and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
I really did make the dough for these in about 8 minutes.
Go make them you beautiful people.
