Tasty Tuesday

I'm a busy human today, so here's a fabulous recipe for Snickerdoodles to keep you busy:

Snickerdoodles

1 cup soft shortening (butter flavored Crisco preferred)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups sifted flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1. Mix shortening, sugar, and eggs together thoroughly
2. Sift flour, measure
3. To sifted flour, add cream of tartar, soda and salt.
4. Sift again.
5. Gradually add flour to above mixture of Crisco, sugar and eggs. Dough may get heavy.
6. Chill dough, covered. At least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
7. Roll into balls the size of small walnuts.
8. Roll in mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
9. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
10. Cook for 9-11 minutes at 375-400 degrees, until lightly browned and still soft. The cookies will puff up and then flatten.
11. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then remove to cooling rack.
12. If you prepare small cookies, this will make about 125 cookies.

Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie, in no small part because it's fun to say "Snickerdoodle."
