Snickerdoodles

aaaCooking With Kids

I spend most of my work days making sure the kids eat nutritious snacks and meals. But sometimes kids just need a sweet treat to nibble on. Snickerdoodles are a perfectly simple, light, and crunchy cookie. Kids love baking snickerdoodles so let them gather the ingredients, mix the dough, and roll the dough in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. The cinnamon-sugar coating on these snickerdoodles is amazing!

You Will Need:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

What to Do:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

2. Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.

3. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets and let cool on wire rack.
