Christmas cookies

The Christmas season isn’t the only time for Snickerdoodles, but it’s a good reason to bake them.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Mix 1/2 C. butter with 3/4 C. sugar and an egg.  Sift together 1 1/3 C. sifted flour, 1 tsp. cream of tartar, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, and 1/8 tsp. salt.  Mix into the butter mixture.  Roll into balls the size of small walnuts.

Roll in a mixture of equal parts of sugar and cinnamon.  Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly browned, but still soft.  (I bake for 8 minutes because my son likes cookies on the soft side.)

Makes 2 1/2 dozen 2″ cookies.  Unless you don’t eat cookies or you have a house crowded with cookie eating friends, hide them because they are seriously addicting.
