Snickerdoodles






Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookies. Last week I had to make some for Activity Days so I made a double batch so I could put some in the freezer. This is a very yummy recipe from the Lion House Pantry Cookbook.

Snickerdoodles

1/2 cup sugar
1-1/4 t. cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
2-1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2-1/2 T. water
6 cups flour
2 t. cream of tartar
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon and set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine butter and 2-1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and water; beat until fluffy. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt until well blended. Shape dough by rounded tablespoonfuls; roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 5 dozen 3-inch cookies.

To freeze the dough I just shape and roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture, put them in a cake pan, put waxed paper on top and add more rows, flash freeze, and place in labeled freezer bags. That way you can enjoy a pan of fresh baked cookies anytime!

Um... Yum! Hey do you know anyone else that would want to come to the Twilight movie party in Pocatello? It's $40 and we still have 30 tickets to sell. Let me know if you can think of anyone. Thanks, G
