Recap: Snickerdoodles and an Award!



These are such a popular cookie in our household and at my old job. They were always requested at every potluck/gathering we went to. Now that I'm a stay at home mommy, I don't get to bake them as often, which is a good thing (for me) , I suppose. Remember I made them here?

Ooh, just after I posted this, I saw I had an award waiting for me! Thanks SO much BOTDA!

Snickerdoodles

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.
Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.
*In our oven now, I bake them at 350' for 10 minutes.
