I needed to bake some cookies today and having run out of chocolate chips, I didn't really want to resort to sugar cookies or peanut butter ones. So I decided to go for snickerdoodle, because it's been a while.
I also had no shortening, which snickerdoodles usually contain, so some recipe searching had to occur.
These took me about 20 minutes to make and turned out great!
(adapted from Allrecipes)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
|1.||Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).|
|2.||Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.|
|3.||Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Blend well. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Roll dough in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.|
In other words, veer towards 8 minutes on the 8-10 minute spectrum. :)
I also subbed in about 1/4 of the flour for whole wheat flour, and I imagine some ground flax seed would taste really good too.
