Greg and I have a holiday tradition of making all sorts of Christmas cookies. We
Snickerdoodles are definitely one of my favorite Christmas cookies. They're so simple, yet they are just so yummy! It also doesn't hurt that they're incredibly easy to make. I love the subtle hint of cinnamon and how fluffy my Snickerdoodles get! And instead of red/green sugar, I like rolling my cookies in sprinkles! Sprinkles make everything better. I figured I'd share my recipe with y'all, just in case you get a hankering for some yourself.
yield 5 dozen
1 and 1/2 c. sugar
2 and 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Stir in salt, flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Roll dough into 1 inch balls.
- In a small bowl, place sugar, cinnamon, and sprinkles / red and green sugar. I just eyeball this.
- Roll dough balls in cinnamon/sugar/sprinkles mixture and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
