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!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

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

– Enjoy…with an ice cold glass of milk

So, I now have a warm(er) house and some delicious cookies too.
