I love the holiday season. I especially love all of the holiday baking that takes place. This is my time to shine! I love to bake especially cookies. And there’s nothing better than baking classic, tried and true recipes.
Bob’s Red Mill products are of the highest quality making baked goods truly shine. Not only does Bob’s Red Mill believe in quality ingredients they also believe in making our world a better place through small acts of kindness. Psychologists have found that baking for others promotes a sense of well-being and benefits the baker as much as, if not more, than the recipient. Maybe that’s why I love baking so much!
One of my family’s favorite? Snickerdoodles! Snickerdoodles are easy to whip up and bake in only 10 minutes. You can make a bunch in a short amount of time making them great to give to friends, family, and neighbors as a holiday treat!
All cookies start with some of the basic ingredients: flour, eggs, butter, sugar. While some doughs are thinner than others, this Snickerdoodle dough will form with a thicker consistency so you can roll them into dough balls.
Once the dough balls are shaped, roll into a cinnamon sugar mixture before placing on a cookie sheet.
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine softened
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups Bob's Red Mill Organic All Purpose Baking Flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 400ºF.
Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, shortening and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Mix 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
Tips for making Snickerdoodles:
- These rich cinnamon-sugar cookies make a great gift! Place a bag of them in a small gift box along with the recipe.
- Use a cookie scoop to get the same amount of dough each time. This will help you get perfectly rounded and evenly-sized cookies.
- Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes after removing from the oven. Then place on cooling racks.
- Substitute 1/4 cup egg nog for one eggs. Gives them an excellent flavor and really brings on the holiday spirit!
- Reduce the temperature to 375 if you are using a dark nonstick cookie sheet.
