Snickerdoodle Cookies

I have another sweet treat for you! I know, where's the real food, right? Lately I have been trying out a lot of new recipes. Some have been winners, others...not so much. I have quite a few more new recipes on my list to try out, so I will definitely be sharing those with you soon, I promise!
I made these cookies for Ryan to bring to work with him. He's a police officer, and let me tell you those guys love it when I send cookies. Apparently they go great with the gallons of coffee they all drink every night. These were the first snickerdoodles I had ever made and they were so simple it's almost ridiculous. They came out perfectly, soft and chewy and cinnamon-y. I made sure to keep a few for myself, but just a few, they aren't exactly "diet" cookies after all. But if you're feeling indulgent or you need an easy cookie to make for a bake sale or school function, you should definitely go with these cookies. And stay tuned for some new savory recipes coming soon!


Snickerdoodle Cookies
Cookie Dough:
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
tsp salt
1 ½ cups sugar
2 ½ cups flour
2 tsp cream of tartar

Cinnamon-Sugar Mix:
4 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Cream the butter and the sugar.
2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and roll the cookie dough into balls.
3. Roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
4. Place the rolled balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave as balls because they will flatten as they bake.
5.Bake the cookies at for 10 to 15 minutes. The bottoms should be light golden. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Move to a cooling rack to finish cooling. They will set as they cool.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
