This recipe came out of an old cookbook. Both are very good cookies but I especially like the chocolate snickerdoodles. :)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c
    sugar
  • 1 stick
    unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 c
    crisco
  • 2 tsp
    vanilla
  • 2
    eggs
  • 2 3/4 c
    flour
  • 1 tsp
    cream of tarter
  • 1/2 tsp
    baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt
  • 3 Tbsp
    sugar
  • 3 tsp
    cinnamon

How to Make Snickerdoodles

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl combine the 3 Tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat 1½ cups sugar, butter and Crisco until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.
  4. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt to the butter-sugar mixture; mix well.
  5. Shape cookie dough into 1-inch balls; roll cookie balls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Note: dough can be chilled for 20 minutes before shaping into balls for easier handling. You can also grease your hands with a little Crisco or oil to prevent the dough from sticking.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets and cool on rack. (everyone's oven temp varies, so keep that in mind on the baking time)
  7. Chocolate Snickerdoodles: ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa can be substituted for ½ cup flour. Bake for 6-8 minutes at 400 degrees.
