soft snickerdoodle cookies

after a crazy week of papers and internship insanity, i settled down on sunday & baked for the fist time in a while. these cookies have been on my "to bake" list forever, & i'm glad i finally made them - they're delicious! these are a definite do over, & true to their name, very soft & chewy. the only thing i changed was adding a dash of vanilla extract. recipe courtesy of food.com.
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 & 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

preheat the oven to 350 degrees f & begin to chill a baking sheet in the fridge. combine the butter & sugar & beat with an electric mixer until fluffy, then add the eggs & vanilla. whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda & salt in another bowl. add the dry ingredients to the butter & sugar mixture & mix until just combined. chill the dough in the fridge for 10-20 minutes. during this time, combine your sugar & cinnamon with a whisk or fork. grease your baking sheet & form the dough into balls with your hands, then coat them in the sugar mixture. bake for 10-12 minutes.
