National Cookie Day!

Today is National Cookie Day.  To many this means a chocolate chip cookie celebration.  For me it is a celebration of my favorite – Snickerdoodles!  I use the recipe I got from my Aunt Priscilla.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In your mixer bowl cream:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
Stir in:
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
until well combined.
In a small bowl combine
3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls, then coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Bake until set, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet.  Like most cookies, eat while still slightly warm.

Enjoy and happy National Cookie Day!
