I bet right about now you could eat one of these…with a tall glass of cold milk. Full disclosure – I’ve already had two!
What a funny word – I love saying it. There is no rhyme or reason behind the name of these cookies. I can imagine someone making sugar cookies and decided to roll them in cinnamon sugar – they had a silly moment and came up with “Snickerdoodles”!
Whatever the reason, these delicious cookies are full of memories of childhood when Mom baked these up for us after school.
They are simple cookies from simpler times…and so easy to make!
Sift flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt together. Combine with creamed butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
In a wide bowl, mix a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Any cinnamon will do but if you use Penzey’s Vietnamese Cinnamon – it will make the cookies sing!
Roll the little balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar and bake.
Soon your kitchen will be filled with wonderful smells of vanilla, sugar and cinnamon.
