I an linking up to Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum, where you will not believe how beautiful her post is today!!!Perhaps these have been here before, I don’t know, but these are a favorite in this house. Maybe, this will be a little reminder of this nice simple cookie. They are perfect for last minute baking, as I always have these ingredients in the house (once you have the Cream of Tartar) and they are easy to throw together.
How many times have I heard,”Mom, I forgot, I need something for tomorrow (or now)!” and these are doable! I think that they are nice and old-fashioned, too.
Snickerdoodles (set oven to 350 degrees)
¾ cup sugar
1 ½ cup flour
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
In a bowl, cream butter and sugar.
Beat in 1 egg.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour adding in Cream of Tartar, baking soda and salt.
and sugar mixture until completely coated.
(I still use the parchment or silpat)
Bake 8 to 12 minutes until lightly browned but still soft.
Remove from oven a let sit a minute then let cool on rack.
I get about 3 dozen out of this recipe. This time I had 40 cookies and I usually need 12 minutes for bake time.
Try one warm-yum! These stay soft inside yet crisp outside -but I don’t think they have ever lasted longer than one day on this house to know for sure how long! I would store them in an air-tight container or tin. Mine get left on the plate and disappear.
So, why not try these and enjoy them with a nice cup of tea or coffee or a cold glass of milk!
Anyway, it’s fun to say!
