Recipe Share: Snickerdoodles

These cookies were a spur of the moment decision, and boy, was I happy when I tasted them. I always turn to my friend Elizabeth's blog when I want to bake (or cook). She has wonderful recipes for cookies and cakes, and all sorts of yummy things. 
Here's the recipe from her blog:


1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Rolling Mixture:
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

Cream butter and sugar together until light-colored. Add eggs, one at a time, until fluffy and then add vanilla. Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Mix dry ingredients into butter mixture. Chill dough, as well as an ungreased cookie sheet, for about 15 minutes in the fridge.

Meanwhile, mix the rolling mixture ingredients in a small, shallow bowl. Scoop 1 inch globs of cookie dough and rolling into balls. Gently coat the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place on chilled, ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
