Snickerdoodles!

This is my favorite cookie and my Aunt Jane, who passed away two years ago, used to make them all the time. Unca T sends me a batch for Christmas too, along with pizzelles. Now THOSE are NOM!

Most of my recipes are on note cards, which means I have no idea half the time if they’re family recipes or ones I just copied from who knows where, with exception to a few I specifically point out. This is one of the former, though I believe it might be my aunt’s recipe for snickerdoodles.

Snickerdoodles

 

Ingredients:

½ cup butter or margarine, softened

½ cup shortening

1 ½ cups sugar

2 eggs

2 ¾ cups flour, self –rising

2 tblsp. Sugar

2 teas. Cinnamon

Heat oven to 400˚. Mix butter, shortening, sugar and eggs thoroughly. Blend in flour. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. Mix 2 tblsp. sugar and the cinnamon; roll balls in mixture. Place two inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from baking sheet.

Piacere!
Vive bene, spesso l’amore, di risata molto!
(live well, love much, and laugh often)
