I have been hankering for something with cinnamon (surprised?) and my step-son has been hankering for snickerdoodles...and I found a recipe in an old magazine, so we started out the day making a batch :) Also made some yogurt and soft pretzels, and even tried making pretzel pockets. Tasty, but not real pretty. Check out my pretzel page to see them!
Here is the recipe taken from Cooking Light September 2007, I used all organic ingredients:
3/4 c granulated sugar
2/3 c light brown sugar
1/2 c butter, softened (I used one Earth Balance stick)
1 tsp vanilla (I'm sure I put more in than this, you know I didn't measure it out :)
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
dash of cinnamon
To roll dough in:
1/3 c granulated sugar (although less would work fine, we had a lot left over)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (You know I didn't measure this either and most likely put more in...but it could have used more :)
Cream together both sugars and butter. Add egg and vanilla and beat well.
Combine dry ingredients with whisk, add to sugar mixture and stir until just combined.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Use tablespoon to scoop dough, roll into ball and then roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place on baking sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes, cool on rack. Makes 30-32 cookies.
