Tasty Tuesday – Snickerdoodles

Happy Tasty Tuesday!  Today’s recipe is for a yummy cookie – Snickerdoodles.  It’s my hubby’s favorite cookie, and we have one place in Amish Country that if we stop there, we get a pack of these.  And we even call the place the snickerdoodle place, since most of the time we can’t remember its real name.

This week’s recipe comes from the “Recipes of the Hearts and Homes from the Amish and Mennonites of Wisconsin”.  This is a large spiral bound cookbook with 567 pages which is home to lots and lots of recipes.  I grabbed my copy from Springville Foods in Lancaster County.


Here’s the recipe if you have some cookie monsters in your house that are bugging you for some cookies.

Snickerdoodles, Mrs. Jonas (Emma) Miller, Fennimore, page 261, “Recipes of the Hearts and Homes from the Amish and Mennonites of Wisconsin”

3 3/4 c. flour

1/2 t. baking soda

1/2 t. cream of tartar

1 c. butter

2 c. sugar

2 eggs

1/4 c. milk

1 t. vanilla

Sift dry ingredients.  Beat butter 30 seconds.  Add sugar, beat till fluffy.  Add eggs, milk, and vanilla.  Beat well.  Add dry ingredients, beating till well combined.  Form dough into 1 inch balls.

Sugar Mixture

3 T. sugar and 1 t. cinnamon

Roll balls of dough in cinnamon sugar mixture.  Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.  Flatten slightly with bottom of drinking glass.  Bake at 350 degrees till lightly browned.


These were absolutely delicious.  Don’t you want to make yourself a batch and eat a few warm ones out of the oven with a glass of milk?

Have a great second day of April!
