It was Valentine's Day and Snickerdoodles were being craved.
Luckily, they are quick and easy to make. Quite tasty as well.
Thick, chewy, sweet, and that little cinnamon kick. Couldn't ask for too much more.
Also, the dough was really good. Sampling is recommended if you make a ball that's too big and have to take some out to make it the right size.
Recipe was pulled from here.
Makes 27 cookies + the dough that was eaten before baking
2 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 sticks of butter
1 1/2 cups (+ 3 tbsp for later) sugar
2 tbsp sugar
Set the over to 350 degrees.
Sift or otherwise mix all the dry ingredients into a bowl.
Using an electric mixer on med high, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and be sure to scrape down the sides so it is properly mixed.
Slow the mixer down to low and add dry ingredients in small batches.
On a plate, mix together the remaining sugar and cinnamon. Take balls of dough that are about 1 - 1.5 inches in diameter and roll them all around, coating them completely.
Cook for 12-15 minutes.
