Snickerdoodles( America's Test Kitchen)......



And yet another recipe I've never made before. I love snickerdoodles, I used to get one occasionally at the Starbucks in Long Beach when I went there to study. Robin asked me to bake something so I picked these. I made a half recipe because whenever I bake cookies, I end up throwing some out. They were fabulous hot out of the oven, but the next day, they tasted a tad stale. I even had them in my favorite lock and lock storage containers.

Snickerdoodles
1 3/4 c. sugar
1 tbls cinnamon
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 tbls( 1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup veg. shortening.( I buy the crisco sticks in the states because they have easy to measure markings on the package)
2 large eggs.

Oven at 375f. Combine 1/4 cup sugar with connamon and a small bowl. Set aside. Whisk together flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt. Set aside( I put this on a paper plate)

Beat butter, shortening and remaining 1 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl. Add eggs. Add flour mixture. Using wet hands, roll 2tbls of dough into a ball and roll in cinn/sugar mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes. These will spread so don't crowd the pan.

Funny, I thought my snickerdoodles held up the best after Christmas (I was eating them for weeks).

Just a tip - I've rolled the dough into balls and dipped them into sugar and I've scooped it with my cookie scooper and then sprinkled the sugar onto them. There was no difference in the final product and scooping them was faster and less messy.

Whattaya mean you end up throwing them out?! Boy, they'd be gone in two day at my house! But one thing I do if cookies go a bit "stale," is zap 'em in the microwave. 10seconds usually does the trick to soften them up. (Unless, of course, you like them crispy).
