First of all, let me introduce myself as Mary’s little sister. I have been meaning to post some entries for awhile! Here it goes.
My boyfriend Greg told me he was craving snickerdoodles which are one of my favorite cookies to bake. I told him “no problem, I’ll make you a batch!” … Little did I know he said snickerdoodles but actually meant peanut butter cookies. When I brought the finished product over he asked how come they didn’t have lines in the top. Anyways, these cookies came out tasty and here is the recipe!
Adapted from Betty Crocker:
1/2 c. butter or margarine, room temperature
1/2 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix thoroughly butter, shortening, 1 1/2 c. sugar, and the eggs. Blend in flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls.
Mix 2 tbsp. sugar and cinnamon; roll balls into mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from baking sheet. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
