Baking Gals Mission: SnickerDoodles

I am a veteran of Operation Baking Gals and just completed my latest baking mission. This is the third month that this fantastic group has been in existence and it's already up to 700 bakers. That's pretty impressive.

This month I sent a few dozen SnickerDoodles. I hope our troops overseas love 'em cause I know that my little boy sure did. In fact, he devoured them. So, you know what that means...I'll be making them again in the future.

I am gonna let ya'll in on a little secret. Before Saturday, I had never had a SnickerDoodle. Crazy, huh? My first batch was a little dry, but batches two and three were delish. I borrowed my recipe from a blog -- no surprise there.

1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.

Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Blend well. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Roll dough in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets

Thanks, Dinner on a Dime, for a new family favorite.
