It's not often that I bake something other than our favorite chocolate chip cookies. When I went to get out all the ingredients today, I was out of brown sugar. So I switched gears and used a couple of different snickerdoodle recipes to come up with my own.
I know. I hardly know myself at all anymore.
Anyways, these turned out crispy on the outside, but chewy on the inside. Huge winner in our house. And I needed to write this down so I remember what I did. Just like when I made up my own Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/2 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Cinnamon Sugar Mixture
4 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and mix. Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth. DO NOT chill dough in fridge. For some reason, it makes them flat! (I'm sure it has something to do about science...I need Alton Brown to explain it to me!) Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Scoop out a ball of dough and roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake for 8 mintues. Let cool and enjoy!
