Snickerdoodles are easy and fun to make.  They're also delicious, and create a great smell in the house.  This recipe comes from Eating, Etc.  I used some whole wheat pastry flour in this recipe, but I can't remember exactly how much.  Probably about 3/4 cup. 


2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup softened unsalted butter
1-1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp ground cinnamon

1) Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, & salt in medium bowl.

2) Beat butter, 1-1/2c sugar, & eggs with mixer at medium speed, until light & fluffy.

3) Beat in dry ingredients until well-blended.

4) Refrigerate one hour.

5) Preheat oven to 375F.

6) Combine remaining 1/4c sugar & cinnamon in shallow bowl.

7) Shape chilled dough into 1” balls & roll in cinnamon sugar.

8) Place 3” apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

This is a wonderful cookie. It's great for ice cream sandwiches.

Oh, I die! I did not even discover snickerdoodles until about 4 years ago and wondered where they had been all my life. They are heaven on a plate!
