Friday Favorites Plus a Great Recipe

Baking season has officially started. There is flour on the floor and I'm almost out of sugar. But I can say our family is truly enjoying the very yummy Snickerdoodle Cookies that came out of the oven yesterday afternoon. I used this simple recipe from Recipezaar:

Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar and eggs thoroughly in a large bowl.
  3. Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
  4. Blend dry ingredients into butter mixture.
  5. Chill dough, and chill an un-greased cookie sheet for about 10-15 minutes in the fridge.
  6. Meanwhile, mix 3 tablespoons sugar, and 3 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
  7. Scoop 1 inch globs of dough into the sugar/ cinnamon mixture.
  8. Coat by gently rolling balls of dough in the sugar mixture.
  9. Place on chilled un-greased cookie sheet, and bake 10 minutes.
  10. Remove from pan immediately.
Makes 24.

If you would rather not bake your own, you can still enjoy snickerdoodles with some of these "sweet" products!
