Snickerdoodles

by Carrie on February 12, 2011

My Mom sent me an IM “Will you make me some cookies” I quickly responded yes. This months Whats Baking challenge was “Baked With Love” I figured I could put a little valentines twist on them. I just added some red sugar with the cinnamon sugar mixture and they had a nice twist.

I did not have any cream of tarter so started googling for a recipe without and didn’t have much luck. Then started googling for something to sub for it. I didn’t find anything but found  a lot of people who just left out the cream of tarter so that’s what I did. I have changed the recipe below to exactly how I made them, minus the red sugar.

These are great, the outside edges have a little crunch but then the middle is the soft yumminess. And they made for a very happy mother. 🙂
