Snickerdoodles

These are my favourite cookie. I could eat the whole batch, so I rarely make them. However…. Son’s school has a cookbook fundraiser and they’ve asked for 1 from each family. This will be ours.

They are a plain cookie, but that’s an understatement. They are soft in the middle, and rolled in cinnamon sugar,so they are crisp on the outside, and should be a little wrinkled.

Ready to eat

Ingredients:
1 cup butter
1.5 cups caster sugar
2 eggs
2.75 cups flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

3 tbsp caster sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

Method: Preheat oven to 160’C. Cream butter and sugar together, then add in eggs one at a time. Add in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt, and mix until it all comes together. Roll into walnut-sized (1″) balls and chill for 5- 10 minutes. I usually manage to make about 3 dozen from this recipe.

Mix the 3 tbsp caster sugar and cinnamon together, roll the balls in it then place, well-spaced out, on a cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are just starting to brown. Remove immediately from the sheet and place on racks to cool – they will be soft. Allow to cool for a few minutes before inhaling all of them at once. 😉 They will be thick, and wrinkled, crisp on the outside but soft in the middle once cool. If you can wait that long….
