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 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!
