Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies … the name alone makes me smile! These little gems are nice and soft … reminiscent of a sugar cookie … but a little bit spunkier! I love the smell as they bake – apparently, so do my children 🙂
yields approximately 48 cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1-1/2 cups white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. baking soda
3 slightly heaping tbsp. white sugar
3-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cream together butter, shortening, 1-1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour, vinegar and baking soda. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
Mix the 3 tbsp. sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl. Rolls balls of dough in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake exactly 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheets about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
