Snickerdoodle Cookies – A Holiday Tradition

Snickerdoodle cookies are a cookie of my Midwestern childhood – both a simple cookie we made together in school and one to make during the holidays.  It’s also, I’m told by our Missourian guest/friend/historian that they are the official cookie of the state of Missouri.  Good choice, guys!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cups butter
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream 1 1/2 cups sugar and butter. Add the eggs. Sift the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt and mix with the creamed mixture. You may need to work it a little with your hands. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in your hands. Mix 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls in mixture to coat.  Place on a baking sheet and gently mash with the bottom of a glass.  Flute the edges with the tines of a fork if you wish.   Bake 10-15 minutes.

Happy working in the kitchen
