A Taste Away from Home: Snickerdoodles

This is not just an ordinary Snickerdoodle! These cookies were given to us for trip-snacking the night before we left. We greatly enjoyed them, and we think you will as well.

from the R. Family

2 3/4 cups flour (half whole wheat/half white flour)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup softened unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Pre-heat oven to 400. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in sifter. In mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs on at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Add flour mixture to mixer, beat just until incorporated. Shape dough into balls and roll entire thing in cinnamon sugar topping. *If dough is too soft to form balls, cover and refrigerate until firm enough to form balls. Bake 8-10 minutes.

“My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste” (Proverbs 24:13).

  3. A friend and I made just finished making these! All I can say is wow! Doubled the recipe and there are still plenty left since they are so “hearty”. Of course, with all that butter and sugar… πŸ™‚

    Glad to hear things are going well on your trip. God’s blessings and traveling mercies to you all.

  4. These sound yummy! I’ve been looking for a good snickerdoodle recipe, we’ll see how these go over. My grandmother made snickerdoodles all the time & they remind me of her. Oh, how I miss her! ~Staci H.
