Snickerdoodles from Sis Sisters' Stuff

  • 3 1⁄2 cups flour
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1⁄4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, milk and vanilla. Mix well. Add the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix until everything is incorporated.
  4. In another small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar for the topping.
  5. Form the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place dough ball on a greased baking sheet and flatten (I used the bottom of a glass to lightly flatten my cookies).
  6. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with additional cinnamon/sugar mixture, then bake for 7-8 minutes. Do not overbake these.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool on the cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool.
*I added extra flour to the dough to make them a little thicker- around 1/4-1/2 cup.  Bake one cookie to test it and see if you like how it baked.
