Gather the family, friends together in the kitchen to bake cookies ~
So, Pepperidge Farms, the largest cookie manufacturer has announced to the media, they will most likely have a cookie shortage this Christmas 2020. Don’t despair. Really, don’t. This is an opportunity, a time to look forward to fun. A time to make merry. Bake your own cookies for Christmas.
A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones. ~ Proverbs 17:22 [New King James Version]
Everyone loves Snickerdoodles. They’re cinnamony and sugary and just right for Christmas. They’re perfect for a family and friends Christmas baking experience, especially with children. This is an easy, ‘no fail’ Snickerdoodles recipe even the most ‘baking challenged’ among us can handle. Get your family and friends together and have a ‘Snickerdoodles Christma Baking Party’, then eat them…perhaps with eggnog or hot apple cider. Don’t fore get to leave a few for Santa!!! LOL
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
1 C butter or margarine (2 sticks)
1 1/2 sugar
2 3/4 C all-purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar (the secret ingredient)
1 tsp baking sod
1/2 tsp salt
Make cinnamon sugar (2 Tbsp sugar to every 1 tsp powdered cinnamon)
1. Let butter or margarine come to room temperature. In a medium or large bowl cream the butter or margarine, add beaten eggs and stir well until smooth. Sift in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt. Stir until completely combined.
2. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture twice to get them well coated.
3. Place the balls 2 inches apart (they will flatten and need space) on a baking sheet well coated with cooking/baking pan spray.
4. Bake at 400 degrees fir 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool. If you don't have a wire rack, remove to a plate to cool. You may have more cookie dough. Then repeat steps 3 and 4.
If it’s not a perfectly formed ball, that’s okay. The point is to have fun. It will taste great anyway. So, you’re NOT a baker? So, what? Don’t be hyper-self critical. Make merry in this Christmas season, and be of good cheer.
