12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day Five

For day five of my Christmas cookies I went with Snickerdoodles. They are a holiday season essential. Delicious and chewy and a total classic. 

I can't for the life of me figure out where I got this recipe, but if anyone recognizes it let me know! I think I found it on Pinterest a year or two back, but I've scoured my boards and can't find the same one. 



12 oz butter

4 1/2 c flour

3 c sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

3/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 tsp salt (optional)

2 tbsp sugar

1 tsp cinnamon


Cream butter and sugar. Add 1/2 flour and then the rest of ingredients. Beat until thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flower. Cover and chill 1 hour. Combine the 2 tsbp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. Shape dough into small balls and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-11 minutes or until edges are golden.
