snickerdoodle cookies {a recipe}


You know how there are certain treats that just scream "Christmas time" to you?? Snickerdoodles are just that for me! Oh how I LOVE these cookies! I have an amazingly yummy (and easy) recipe to share today!

Snickerdoodle Cookies
1 1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Shortening
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Butter {I use unsalted}
2 3/4 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder

Chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour

In a bowl mix 2 tsp Sugar and 1 tsp Cinnamon
Roll dough into balls {any size you want}
Roll dough balls in sugar/cinnamon mixture then place on cookie sheet

Bake at 400 degrees 8-10 minutes {I pull mine out as soon as the cookies start to crackle}
Don't overcook :)

These sound and look good, although I did just have to google "shortening" as It's not something/a term that I have heard used with baking in the UK. I think I'm going to make them when I go to my parents next week.

It's funny, even though I don't associate snickerdoodles with Christmas, I just bought a box at Trader Joes. I must have been channeling you!
