Megans Cookin: The Besy Snickerdoodles I Ever Made!

The Besy Snickerdoodles I Ever Made!


actually, ...

There the only ones I've ever made.

Darling Daughter gives Them a Thumbs up!

I almost past on this months Cookie Carnival partly because I didn't think we were a snickerdoodle family and because Kellie (above, how cute is she?) is going on a camping trip and she wanted to take homemade Biscotti. We are definitely a Biscotti kind of family. So Biscotti it was.


Until I showed her a picture of April's snickerdoodles. All of a sudden, before my eye's, we became a snickerdoodle family.

These cookies were so soft and chewy. I'm eating one right now for breakfast research. When I asked the hubby for his opinion, he said "Mmmm, there so chewy and, and, Mmmmm!"

That's a thumbs up!

Who knew we were snickerdoodlers? They're so soft and chewy.

" To go"

We have them all packed to go camping, but they still have to make it through one more day.

Will they make it to the camping trip?

Did I tell you how soft and chewy they are?


Makes 4 dozen.
* 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
* 1/2 cup pure vegetable shortening
* 1 3/4 cups sugar, plus more if needed
* 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, plus more if needed
* 2 large eggs

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, with one rack in top third and one rack in bottom third of oven. Line baking sheets with Silpat baking mats or parchment paper; set aside.
2. Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine butter, shortening, and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add eggs, and beat to combine. Add dry ingredients, and beat to combine.
3. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar

I am so glad that you have converted to a snickerdoodler! I am not a huge fan of them, but the hubby and kids are. Your daughter is gorgeous!

I LOVE snickerdoodles. I made some back in the beginning of my blog that I think are the best ones I've made, but I haven't made them since. I guess there are too many recipes to try out there!!

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog! I must say that I was not much of a "Snickerdoodler" myself, but that has been changed thanks to a ride at the Carnival!

I can smell them from here! I love making biscotti too. The flavor options rock! Nut or no nuts, chocolate,vanilla or anise ...chips, cherries or crans?
