I am a cookie lover, cookies of any size, shape and variety. My sweet husband is very much aware of this love….which has never lessened my love for him. I make room for all kinds of love in my life! 😉
So, it came as a big surprise to him that I had never baked Snickerdoodles and had never tasted them before. How could that possibly be? No clue. I just don’t remember them as being part of the Canadian Cookie Manifesto.
We are going on a little road trip for 5 days, and as a surprise to him I am baking Snickerdoodles for the car ride. Yes, that’s the kind of gal I am. Sweet as all get out!
I won’t tell you too much about our trip (yet) since it’s a surprise for you as well. Needless to say, we are very lucky that Matt’s sister is visiting and she is house/dog/chicken sitting for us!
I found plenty of recipes on Pinterest (I know you are sick of hearing this), but honestly I found 15 of the same exact recipe all over the internet. You probably already have your own. This is just my “give it a whirl” try!
Adapted from: Joy of Cooking
2 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar (for rolling your cookies)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In your mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Once you have added the 2 eggs then beat in the vanilla.
Add your flour mixture, beating on low speed just until the ingredients are blended.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Scoop 1-inch balls of dough and roll in the sugar and cinnamon mixture to coat. Place on prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for 10-11 minutes.
Let cookies set on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack.
