Snickerdoodle Cookies

A few weeks ago I was helping my cousin over the phone with the snickerdoodle blondies, and it made me crave snickerdoodles myself. So I decided to test out a new snickerdoodle cookie recipe I had. I gathered everything together and whipped a batch of these cookies up! They turned out fantastic, they were soft in the centers with a slight crisp around the edges, in my opinion...perfection! These stayed fresh for several days, my work friends and some of my family got to enjoy them as well. This is my new favorite cookie recipe!

Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies from Recipezaar

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1.Preheat oven to 350°F.
2.Mix butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar and eggs thoroughly in a large bowl.
3.Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
4.Blend dry ingredients into butter mixture.
5.Chill dough, and chill an ungreased cookie sheet for about 10-15 minutes in the fridge.
6.Meanwhile, mix 3 tablespoons sugar, and 3 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
7.Scoop 1 inch globs of dough into the sugar/ cinnamon mixture.
8.Coat by gently rolling balls of dough in the sugar mixture.
9.Place on chilled ungreased cookie sheet, and bake 10 minutes. (I took mine about about 8 1/2 mins just to make sure they stayed soft and chewy!)

10.Remove from pan immediately. Place on cooling rack.

Try these cookies, you will not be sorry!
