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 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!
