How to Make Snickerdoodles

Step-by-Step

  • 1Gradually stir into creamed mixture
  • 2Cream shortening, softened butter and sugar.
  • 3Add eggs and beat well
  • 4Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt
  • 5Chill dough at this point.
  • 6I form the balls with a slightly rounded measuring teaspoon because I prefer nibbble size cookies. 1/2 tablespoon makes medium size cookies...your choice
  • 7Roll each ball in a mixture of 2 Tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Again I do this to my own preference cuz I love cinnamon. I also place this is a plastic bag and roll 8-10 at a time.
  • 8I bake my cookies on parchment paper - saves clean up. I cool the cookies on the cookie sheet on a rack.
  • 9Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. They will be soft when you remove them but will crisp up quickly.
  • 10My result with the bite size is I end up with 9 dozen cookies....the more to share!
