On this really cool fall day, I was absolutely determined not to turn on the heat. As evening started to inch closer, the cooler my house was becoming. 66/67 degrees is just a little too cool for me. So, my need for some sort of heat source led to me baking some cookies.
I always bake chocolate chip cookies, I venture out every now again and make chocolate chip M&M cookies. Today, I completely threw caution to the wind and decided to make Snickerdoodle cookies.
I hunted down my mother-in-law’s yummy Snickerdoodle recipe. I remembered how every time she makes them for family get-togethers, they never last long. We all devour them pretty fast. Yeah, they are that good.
They taste even better than they look!
What You Need:
* 1 cup soft shortening
* 1 1/2 cups of sugar
* 2 eggs
* 2 3/4 cups of flour
* 2 teaspoons cream of tartar (I used 2 teaspoons of lemon juice as a substitute)
* 1 teaspoon of baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2 teaspoons of sugar
* 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
What To Do:
– Preheat oven to 350 degrees
– Mix shortening, sugar, eggs together
– Blend all dry ingredients.
– Mix all ingredients together. Mix well.
– Roll dough into small balls
– In a bowl, combine 2 teaspoons of sugar and cinnamon
– Roll ball of dough into cinnamon/sugar mix
– Place on ungreased cookie sheet
– Bake for 8-10 minutes
– Enjoy…with an ice cold glass of milk
So, I now have a warm(er) house and some delicious cookies too.
