Sometimes you hafta post a recipe just so you can post ANOTHER recipe that uses the first recipe.
(Does that make sense? Keep a look out for a yummy dessert that uses Snickerdoodle pieces in the next week or two.)
I know Snickerdoodles are kind of a *boring* cookie, but my husband says these are the best chewiest ones he's ever tasted. So I figured you deserved the recipe to these.
Please pronounce them "schhnicker-doodle" when offering them to others.
It's funny. I promise.
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up
-1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)-1 1/2 cups sugar
-3 cups flour
-2 tsp cream of tartar
-1 tsp baking soda
-2 tsp baking powder
-1/8 tsp salt
For cinnamon sugar coating:
-3 Tbsp sugar
-1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat for 2 minutes. (This part is what makes them chewy!)
In a separate bowl combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to your butter/sugar mixture and mix until combined.
Combine sugar and cinnamon for coating in a small bowl.
Roll Tbsp sized balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat, then place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for 8 minutes or until cracked. Allow to cool for a few minutes before moving to wire rack to cool.
Store in an airtight container.
