Joshua's snickerdoodles by


1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/3 C brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 C flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars (1/2 C granulated sugar and 1/3 C brown sugar)with an electric mixer on high speed. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tarter. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Preheat oven to 300 degrees while you let the dough rest for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.

In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar with the 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Take about 2 - 2 1/2 tablespoons of the dough and roll it into a ball. Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press it onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining cookies. Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes and no more. The cookies may seem undercooked, but will continue to develop after they are removed from the oven. When the cookies have cooled they should be soft and chewy in the middle.
