A cup of joe and a cookie....

for breakfast!  I love to have cookies, cake or pie for breakfast. I know it's not a healthy choice but one can't always choose healthy over yummy.  Oh, I love pizza for breakfast too!

My Sweetie called me a few days ago and asked if I would help him make some cookies for a Thanksgiving luncheon that his company was having last Thursday.  Well, of course I would help him.  So, that evening when I arrived home he had rifled through the recipe box and selected two potential cookie recipes. He had started to gather the ingredients together for both recipes. Well, I have to admit when I saw it all, one eyebrow shot up and my engaging welcoming smile sort of turned lop-sided.  Really....2 cookie mixes? Isn't that double the work and double the trouble?  He quickly settled on the snickerdoole recipe and we started to work.  He creamed the soft ingredients and I took care of the dry ingredients.  We mixed the two together formed the cookie ball and popped them in the oven. I have to admit this is a perfectly simple cookie recipe with great taste!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of butter (softened)
1/2 cup of shortening
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups of flour
2 tsp of cream of tarter
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp of baking soda
2 tsp of cinnamon

Sugar mix: 1 cup of sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon. 

Heat oven to 350.  Mix sugar, butter, shortening and eggs. In a another bowl ( I use a gallon sized baggie to mix the dry ingredients) mix the dry ingredients).  Add dry ingredients to creamed ingredients and mix by hand. Form into a cookie ball and press into sugar mix.  Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.

This is one of our favorite holiday cookie recipes.  I hope you enjoy it.

Completely in love with your dishes... You sparked a wonderful memory of making those cookies with my Mom when I was little.
