Snickerdoodles


Snickerdoodles are a wonderfully simple American sugar cookie - a lovely little afternoon snack.  Incredibly easy to put together and the kids love to get involved and do the rolling.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking / bread soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
For the topping:
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F/180C.  

Cream sugar and butter, beat in eggs.  Whisk dry ingredients together and beat into butter mixture.  Beat on low speed until combined. 

Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl.  Roll dough into one inch balls and roll in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.  

Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
