Tasty Tuesday – Snickerdoodles

Happy Tuesday!  Another cold morning here.  The older I get, the more I dislike winter.  I am ready for spring (think I have a long wait though).

This week’s recipe is for snickerdoodles – another type of cookie I made for Christmas.  These were really good and soft, not crisp.  We really enjoyed them, and I hope those who received Christmas cookie tins did as well.

Here is this week’s recipe taken from “The Busy Mother’s Cookbook”.


Snickerdoodles, Sarah, page 167

3/4 c. butter blend

2 c. sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 tsp. soda

1/4 tsp. salt

3 c. flour

Mix ingredients.

Cinnamon mixture:

2 tsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. sugar

Rough dough in small balls and roll in cinnamon mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees until lightly brown.


Don’t they look yummy?

You can pick this cookbook up in many places in Lancaster County – Gordonville Book Store, Bird-in-Hand Bake Shop, and Kauffman’s Fruit Farm to name a few.  Here is also a link, for those out of town who might want to grab a copy for themselves, to purchase it from Kauffman’s Fruit Farm online…


They have a nice selection of different things you can order online from them and have quite a few of the cookbooks I have used here on my blog for sale as well.

If you are having this cold spell like we are, it would be a perfect time to bake up a batch of these yummy cookies to warm up your kitchen and your tummy.


Have a great week and stay warm!
