That's right, Snickerdoodles! Mmmm! She uses an old family recipe and said I could share it with you! It's from her mom, so we'll call it ... The Z Family Snickerdoodles! Ready?
The Z Family Snickerdoodles
1 cup soft margarine (Mom swears by Parkay and at other brands; I don't know why)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs (Mom uses extra large ones)
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (Mom only uses King Arthur)
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix the first three ingredients; beat well. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients, then add to the rest. CHILL DOUGH THOROUGHLY. Mom often makes the dough in the evening, then bakes the next day.
Roll dough into little balls - about the size of a quarter - or use a little cookie scoop.
Roll in a mixture - oh, wait. Roll the DOUGH BALLS (hee hee hee!) in a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons of the freshest cinnamon you can get.
Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F (yes, that hot!) for 8-10 minutes or until about the color of Zim. :)
I hope you'll give them a try. They're really wonderful.
Speaking of really wonderful, a big THANK YOU to my wonderful friends Jazz and Dixie! They sent me a picture of a sign from one of the parks they go to in Japan.
Love and full moon fun,
