Make a snowman. We were forecasted to have snow today but it looks like it bypassed us and stayed South and West of us. I'm trying to decide if I'm happy about it or not. Hey, if it's going to snow, I'd rather it be on the weekend.
And what better to go with snow than a cup of Joe and some Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Cookies.
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2 3/4 cups of flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
sugar mix for dipping dough in: 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon; mix and set aside
Heat oven to 400.
Mix sugar, butter, shortening and eggs in a large bowl.
Mix flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a separate bowl then add to creamed ingredients.
Shape dough into a rounded ball then press into sugar mix.
Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 mins.
These are some of our favorite cookies at The Old Cupboard Door
