Snickerdoodle Treats

Just a quick post to show you the cookie treats I made this weekend (to show my appreciation to a helpful neighbour). Inside I placed some tasty, homemade snickerdoodle cookies.  They were the perfect size and texture to stack inside the little bags, plus I just love introducing people to this wonderful cookie –  and it’s equally wonderful name!   Just another simple, but meaningful DIY gift idea.

For those of you who would like to try making snickerdoodles, I highly recommend them!  They are so, SO easy to make and can be pulled together at a moments notice – using some common ingredients most folks already keep in stocked in their pantry.  Plus – they are an excellent cookie to enjoy with a nice hot cup of tea.  Reason enough right?  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 2 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Butter , Softened
  • 1 1/3 + 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a large bowl, stir together flour, cream of tartar and baking soda.
  2. In separate large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and 1 1/3 cups sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in 2 eggs and vanilla.  Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture until blended.
  3. In small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining 1/4 cup sugar. With hands, shape dough into 1″ balls.  Roll the balls into the mixture to coat.  Place the balls on an ungreased large cookie sheet (about 1″ apart); this recipe makes about 36-50 cookies.. Bake until set and lightly golden and slightly crinkly – about 12 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute then move to a wire rack.
  4. Flick your kettle on and brew up some tea!  These cookies are best about 15m after coming out of the oven, but stay tasty for several days when kept in a sealed container.
