Cookie Exchange: The best Snickerdoodles EVER

It's time for the 2011 Cookie Exchange!



I am excited to share one of my favorite cookies.
SNICKERDOODLES
I LOVE Snickerdoodles. But they have to be soft!
These are so soft & so amazing.
They are the best Snickerdoodles EVER.
I promise you can't just eat one. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Here is what you need:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks)  butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
Topping:
Cinnamon & Sugar
Like I have mentioned before, I am a cookie snob and I am all about soft cookies.

In a bowl, cream softened butter and sugars together. 
Add eggs and vanilla. 
Beat until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the cookie ingredients. 
I always add in a dash of cinnamon to the mix!
Slowly pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix well.
Chill dough in refrigerator for 30 - 60 minutes. 
Combine topping sugar and cinnamon together. 
Roll dough into walnut sized balls and in the cinnamon/sugar mix.
Place on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 12-14 minutes depending on your oven.
Bake at 300 for 12-14 minutes.
DO NOT OVER BAKE!
I pull them out of the oven as soon as the edges are slightly brown. They might not seem like they are done, but they are. If you cook them longer, they will over cook and be as hard as rocks!
After they have cooled, try not to eat all of them!
And, like I always do....store them in an airtight container with a slice of bread in it (the bread helps keep the cookie soft!)

Now, grab a button & link up your cookie recipes!
The linky will be open until next Wednesday!

  5. Yummo! I am a cookie snob, too! I had to wait a few hours at the airport before my flight the other day, so I went to a coffee shop near my gate.. My eyes lit up when I saw that they had snickerdoodles.. Bit into it and it was rock hard! Boo! :( That cookie wasn't cheap, either! LOL. Can't wait to try out your recipe and some from the linky party. I was hoping to get one posted, but ran out of time.
