My work decided to do a cookie exchange right before the holidays.  Having brought in a few different types of cookies over the last couple of years, I asked if there were any requests.  The answer? Snickerdoodles, snickerdoodles, snickerdoodles!  Who doesn’t like cinnamon and sugar?  These little babies are chewy and delicious—just make sure to not overback them.  If they’re golden brown, they’re overdone.

1 Cup Shortening
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
2 3/4 Cup Flour
2 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp salt

4 T. Sugar
2 tsp. Cinnamon

Mix first three ingredients throughly.  In a separate bowl add all dry ingredients and mix.  Add half the dry mixture to the wet.  Once combined add the rest of the dry and mix completely.   Roll dough into walnut size balls and roll in the cinnamon-sugar.  Make at 375F for 8-10 min.
