Snickerdoodles Recipe

I made a bunch of these today, because we got a bunch of this:
Lots and lots of it. Just a bit more than we're used to.

Fine by me, because I LOVE snow. Love, love, love it. It's already snowed twice this week and we're getting a third snow storm Tuesday. 3 in one week! Woohooooo. Not many people say that about snow, but I do.

My neighbor has a snow blower, and every time it snows I look outside and he's clearing out my sidewalk too. Nice guy. So I baked him some cookies today.

Would you like the recipe? If you do, here it is:

Mrs. Jones' Snickerdoodles

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tb sugar (divided)
2 eggs
2 Tb cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl, on medium speed beat butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Reduce speed to low and beat in flour mixture until well combined.

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll them in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until set and lightly golden (I like my cookies soft so I put them in a little less time and before they turn golden). The tops will be crinkly.

Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
