IT WAS MY GRANDDAUGHTER JULIA'S 7th BIRTHDAY 'TODAY' ON 9-7-2011..WHEN WE WENT DOWN FOR THE NEW GRANDBABY TO BE BORN WE STOPPED BY MY DAUGHTER'S HOUSE TO TAKE GIFTS, "SNICKERDOODLE MUFFINS AND COOKIES" TO THEM FOR THE B-DAY.

A bit of history on the Snickerdoodle Cookie:
"This sweet little cookie with the whimsical name originated in 19th-century New England and has become an American classic. In this recipe, cake mix provides convenience to the traditional version, but the method of rolling the dough in sugar and cinnamon before baking has been kept".

THIS RECIPE WAS IN MY EMAIL BOX AND SINCE WE ALL LIKE "QUICK AN EASY" COOKIES TO MAKE FOR THE HOLIDAY'S COMMING UP, I WANTED TO SHARE IT....from BETTY CROCKER
(also photo of cookies from B.C.)
SHE SAID, "TO BE SURE TO SHAR IT WITH OTHERS"

Ingredients

1 pkg
betty crocker® supermoist® white cake mix
1/2 c
butter or margarine, melted (add a little at a time)
1
egg
2 Tbsp
sugar (i use a little more)
1 tsp
ground cinnamon (i use a little more)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets).
Mix cake mix, butter and egg in large bowl with spoon until dough forms (some dry mix will remain).
TIP: be sure to add butter a little at a time so dough doesn't get too sticky to handle.
2
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
TIP: for Super Snickerdoodles, shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls and place them 3 inches apart on the cookie sheet; bake 12 to 14 minutes. You’ll get about 26 large cookies (regular size yields about 30, even smaller you get about 36).
3
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set.
Remove from cookie sheet to cooling racks.
TIP: also, French vanilla cake mix is a great stand-in for the white cake mix.

...a bit of history on Snickerdoodle Cookies.

WIKI..The Joy of Cooking claims that snickerdoodles are probably German in origin, and that the name is a corruption of the German word Schneckennudeln (lit. "snail noodles")[3], a kind of pastry. A different author suggests that the word "snicker" comes from the Dutch word snekrad, or the German word Schnecke, which both describe a snail shape.[4] Yet another hypothesis suggests that the name has no particular meaning or purpose [5] and is simply a whimsically named cookie that originated from a New England tradition of fanciful cookie names

Nana's Snickerdoodle Cookies

Hi, Cin! I have enjoyed the Snickerdoodle Muffin Recipe! I thought I would like to check an original 'S. Cookie' recipe, to compare the two separate recipes. The Lady who lived next door to my Mom's house, used my recipe for the 'S. Cookies' roughly 35 years ago. Her Son still can't get enough to satisfy his own 'sweet tooth'. He proclaims that his two little children, need the Cinnamon-Sugar mixture! As one has her Veternarians Degree, and her younger Sister has her Degree as a Child Psychologist. I have to admit those girls got fed in order to encourage their brain cells to carry them forward in school - and with both of them getting full Degrees [Full Bachelor's, Master's, and Finally a Degree in Medicine for Animal's Care, and a Fully Licensed MD in School Systems Directed by the Federal Government - She travel's throughout the Country exploring the condition's of these Children under Her Program's]. Their Dad is convinced that the Snickerdoodles are the best supplement they had in their Lifetime's as they were growing-up. Grandma saw that both girls had the accurate recipe to feed to their own Children, too! If the recipe's are good the recipe get's passed on to their families, neighbors, and the World. Yum! Yum! :-)
