The Best Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe

It makes me so happy that my kids enjoy baking. Davis made these the other day- one of his specialties!  He delivered some to the neighbors and they called later saying they were the best snickerdoodles they’d had.

Davis’s Snickerdoodle Cookies

1 1/2 sticks butter, softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

Roll dough balls in 2 Tablespoons sugar plus 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and eggs thoroughly. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll dough balls in 2 TB sugar plus 2 teaspoons cinnamon.

Place on ungreased baking sheet for 8 minutes.  We like them “pillow” soft so we take them out a little early to cool and soften.

Last week we went out to dinner for my dad’s 65th birthday with most of his 8 siblings!  I really wanted to bring a cake to the restaurant but was running out of time. Mary Fowler saved the day and baked one of our favorites: the Hershey chocolate cake.  It goes so well with red wine, my dad’s favorite 🙂

So while I showered and got ready, she whipped up the cake and it looked beautiful!  Everyone loved it!  We definitely show love with food around here!
