12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES: Snickerdoodle Cookies

Day 10 of 12 Days of Christmas Goodies
Snickerdoodle Cookies

How many days until Christmas? Who's counting? Not me! My shopping is DONE, my baking is DONE, my present wrapping DONE and guess where I am going... on a 5 day cruise! NO JOKE! I am really not kidding! As you are reading this I will be sailing off on a Christmas cruise with SOME of my family! My husband and my boys will be joining me on this Christmas cruise which was suppose to be a family trip, but my twins will be going to Las Vegas for a dance competition. They are competitive dancers and are going to Las Vegas (from California) to try and qualify for a bid to the Worlds Competition which is in Florida. So, needless to say dance came first and the family cruise became just me and my boys! I guess it's all part of growing up! (I can report NOW that it was ALL WORTH IT!!! The twins team received an at large bid for WORLDS 2011, WAY TO GO PACE SENIOR POM)!!!

Here's the list of the 12 Days of Christmas Goodies in case you need an idea (or two) for baking this year!

Snickerdoodle Cookies
from my sister-in-law Michelle

1 cup butter
1-1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2-3/4 cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Mix together
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Cream together butter, sugar and eggs in electric mixer. Mix all the dry ingredients together and then add to the wet a little bit at a time and mix well.  Chill in refrigerator for 2 or more hours (we usually chill overnight).
Roll into 1" balls then roll into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Flatten with a fork and Bake at 375 for 12 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE.
