During our stay in Durango, my sister made Snickerdoodle cookies … those yummy cookies that are rolled in cinnamon and sugar. The kids devoured the cookies as quickly as they came out of the oven. (The adults ate quite a few, too!)
My sister is quite the baker. In fact, it’s her dream to move from Seattle to Durango (after her kids go off to college and are on their own) and open a bakery. Jeff and I would love to have a vacation home in Durango by that time, so we’d be able to visit her bakery often! We can all dream … right?
Anyway, my sis has tested several Snickerdoodle recipes and has determined that The Joy of Cooking recipe is the very best. We all thought so! Here you go …
Makes 3 dozen, 3-inch cookies
1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease cookie sheets or line them with parchment paper.
2. Whisk together until well blended the following:
- 2 cups all-purpose Flour
- 2 tsp. Cream of Tartar
- 1 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 1 cup unsalted Butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups Sugar
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 4 tsp. cinnamon
NOTE: These cookies are flatter than many other recipes for Snickerdoodles. But, they are the best tasting Snickerdoodles! Store airtight for several days or freeze for up to one month. Enjoy!
