nomnomnom snickerdoodle cookies

Snickerdoodles in the cookie jar, recipe from Grandma's cookbook.

I’ve been craving Snickerdoodle cookies since I saw them from another friend in my social media feed.
Now, I love baking, however, I require a nearly spotless kitchen before I start, meaning dishes need to be washed and put away (no dish-washing machine here).  And since all four of us are home for the Summer, meaning we’re eating all of our meals at home, that means there is ALWAYS dishes.
But I finally had the opportunity to get these ultra-delicious cookies baked, and they did not disappoint!
My two youngest lined up with me and we had an assembly line: roll dough balls, roll in cinnamon & sugar, place on baking pan.  Making memories ♥

Okay, now for the recipe from the cookbook my Grandma put together, printed and bound and gave to her family members 🙂

Snickerdoodle Cookies Ingredients
1 Cup soft shortening (I used straight butter, because I’m cool like that)
1½ Cups Sugar
2 Eggs
2¾ Cups Flour
2 Tsp. Cream of Tartar
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
¼ Tsp. Salt

1. Heat oven to 400°
2. Mix butter, sugar, and eggs thoroughly
3. Measure flour by dip-level-pour method or by sifting
4. Blend all dry ingredients; stir in
5. Roll dough in 1 inch size balls
6. Roll in mixture of 2 Tbsp sugar and 2 Tsp. cinnamon
7. Place 2″ apart on ungreased baking sheet
8. Bake 8-10 minutes
(These cookies puff up at first, then flatten out) Makes 5 dozen 2″ cookies.
