Snickerdoodles

SnickerdoodlesSnickerdoodles is just one of those classic recipes that everyone needs in their recipe collection.

Just as trends in fashion, home decorating, and cars come and go, so do trends in cookies.  However, some cookie recipes have stood the test of time, becoming favorites generation after generation.  They become a part of our culture and become what I call classics.

Snickerdoodles have become a true classic for my family.  This will be a recipe, just like my Nestle Toll House Cookie Variations, that I will pass on to my children.

Ingredients for Snickerdoodles:

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 1/3 cups sugar

2 eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 recipe Cinnamon-Sugar Coating (see below)

Instructions for Snickerdoodles:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter, sugar and eggs, until fluffy. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt, mix until thoroughly blended.

Prepare one recipe of Cinnamon-Sugar Coating.

Shape dough into one inch balls.  Roll in Sugar-Cinnamon Coating, covering completely.

Place 2 1/2 inches apart on an ungreased baking cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes, or until golden.  Remove cookies from baking sheet; cool on cooling rack.

Ingredients for Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:

2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions for Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.  Simple as that.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!

      I too love Ohio tomatoes, we grow them every year in our garden.
