It's time to dust off that cream of tartar, because we're having snickerdoodles!

That's another fun word, don't you think? Snickerdoodles. Fun to say and fun to eat! And with snickerdoodles being one of the few reasons to even own cream of tartar, why not pull it out today and bake some cookies for the family? I think you'll agree it's a magnificent way to start the week. Heck, just say the word snickerdoodles a few times and you won't be hating Mondays nearly as much!

Cinnamon-sugar coating:

  • 3/4 tsp. white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
For the snickerdoodles, you will need:
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 Tbsp. shortening
  • 3 Tbsp. white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. egg
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Preheat oven for 15 minutes. Make the cinnamon and sugar coating; set aside. Cream together butter, shortening, sugar, egg and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Refrigerate dough until firm. Shape dough into small balls. Roll balls of dough in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place dough balls in greased baking pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.

These precious little white cookies, with their cinnamon sugar coating, are sure to sweeten your week. Have a good one!

That's Easy Baking!

Love, Cookie B.

Hey Cookie,
I'm down here in Fla with Easy Mim--really love the 'snicks'--especially saying the word. By the Bye, do you have a great cocktail to go with the 'snicks'?
Bye now,

The "1/3 cup all-purpose flour" made me laugh aloud. In case you wondered if it did.

Dear Cookie -
What's this Cream of TARTAR? Can I just use Tartar sauce, like for my fish sticks? I ain't never heard of cream of tartar. Sounds a little to fancy for those of us in the trailer park.

Cookie Brochette said...

Hello all! No one can resist a snickerdoodle.

Lidian--Nice to see you here!

Easy Mim--Wow, what a surprise. Glad to see you at Lightbulb Cuisine.

Tammy--Good heavens, no. Keep the tartar sauce for the fish sticks! Visit the baking aisle in your grocery store for cream of tartar.

Deb--I know you appreciate small servings with your gang. :-)
