For this one, there will be no introduction. All anyone needs to know about snickerdoodles is that they are small and cinnamon-y and just good. They’re the most simplest things in the world. No need for anything extra.
Before beginning the production of these simple little bread balls, you have to heat your oven to 375 degrees. Make sure everything is out of there first, though. You wouldn’t want to melt any plastic handles. Trust me. They smell awful.
Now, gather the ingredients:
- ½ cup of butter
- 1 ½ cups of flour
- 1 wonderful cup of sugar
- 1 big egg. (obviously the only kind you can get is a dino egg) (Please don’t do that)
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla (not the flower. The extract)
- ¼ teaspoon of baking soda.
- ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar (what even is that?)
- 2 tablespoons of (more) sugar
- 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon (not ground like floor. Ground like powder)
And now for the fun and messy part of this wonderful endeavor. First, beat the butter. Beat it like Michael Jackson. Except do it with an electric mixer and do it for thirty seconds on medium speed. Now add flour. Not all of it, just ¾ of a cup. Then add a cup of sugar, the egg, the vanilla, the cream of tartar, and the baking soda. Beat it until well blended. Now set it aside like that homework you don’t want to do.
Stir together two tablespoons of sugar with the tablespoon of cinnamon. Do that in a seperate bowl. Now, set it aside.
Now, grab the container of cookie batter and make balls out if. Just little small ones, and set them on a cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart. That way when they expand they won’t meld together. Now, sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar stuff onto the batter balls. Place the tray into the oven and bake them for 11 to 13 minutes. Or until the edges are a golden brown, like the beautiful color of wheat in the golden hours of the afternoon.
Now take them out of the oven and enjoy the simple flavor of love – I mean snickerdoodles.
