s n i c k e r d o o d l e s

Nothing says "celebrate the end of exams" like a fresh batch of cookies...particularly snickerdoodles.

I adapted my recipe from this recipe from Kevin of Closet Cooking:

-1/2 cup butter, softened
-3/4 cup sugar
-1 egg
-1 tsp. vanilla
-1 1/4 cup flour
-1 tsp. baking powder
- pinch salt
(*outer coating*)
-2 tbsp sugar
-1 tbsp. cinnamon

I followed the directions as he did except for a few things. **Using softened butter was easier for creaming it with my sugar by hand. I also, personally, love cinnamon and that slightly spicy kick that it gives, so with the outer coating I added 1 tbsp instead of 2 tsp as he calls for, and then added a little bit of the mixture into the dough while mixing in the dry ingredients before rolling it in more cinnamon/sugar. Lastly if you are lazy like me or just dont have unsalted butter in the house, no worries! That just means that later in the recipe only add a pinch of salt instead of 1/4 tsp.

Well I am off to take my homemade cheezit-like crackers out of the oven :) coming soon...

lots of lovee
