I have been working on this off and on now for a year. It has been strenuous, but I do it because it is important work, and while it has been long hard hours (hahahaha) it has been worth it, every second. For now I can give you the perfect snickerdoodle.
Besides my Mom's chocolate chip cookies, these are probably my favorite, though I think I have said that a few times now.....are you counting my favorites? I'm not which is probably a good thing.
These are light, and perfect. Crisp on the edge with a soft chewy center...these ruin my diet, completely.
Makes 3 dozen with a small scoop
1 stick unsalted butter-room temperature
1 cups sugar
1 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoons ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheets baking mats or parchment paper; set aside.
Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
In your mixing bowl cream butter and sugar add in egg mix until combined. Add in dry ingredients and mix well.
In a small bowl add sugar and cinnamon for coating. scoop out balls, roll slightly then roll around in coating, place on baking sheet about 2 inches apart, these like to spread.
Bake for 8 minutes, you don't want your cookies to brown. Let cool on pans for 1 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to finish.
This can easily be doubled if you need more cookies.
