Favorite Friday Recipe: Snickerdoodle cookies

These are super delicious, surprisingly even better the next day!  Recipe from smittenkitchen

Snickerdoodles (or "hey I like a good sugar cookie, and oh it's even better with cinnamon on it!")

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  •  2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  •  1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  16 tablespoons (2 stick or 8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  •  1 3/4 cups sugar, plus more if needed
  •  2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, plus more if needed
  •  2 large eggs

  •  Preheat the oven to 400°
  • Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt
  • In a mixer, beat butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes
  • Add eggs
  • Add dry ingredients
  • Chill the dough for an hour
  • Use small scooper to form balls of dough
  • Roll in cinnamon sugar mixture (I used demerara sugar and it was AWESOME)
