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.
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.
