Grandma's Recipes One By One!


on April 2, 2014

Happy April, everybody!

I just had to share this pic of my latest attempt at MAKING spring happen in my house!!!


These lilies are so beautiful – they almost don’t look real!

No fragrance but wow, what a show!

The recipe for today is for my husband’s favorite cookie.

That’s hard to understand in this chocolate-crazed family, but nevertheless, his favorite cookie is Snickerdoodles.

Because it’s his favorite, I’ve tried a lot of different Snickerdoodle recipes and this is his favorite so far.

This is one of the classics.

One by-product of this recipe – your house smells GREAT from all of the cinnamon!

Here is the recipe as I made it:


Mix thoroughly:

1 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cup white sugar

2 eggs

Sift together and stir in:

2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Chill dough for about 1 hour.

Roll dough into balls about the size of a small walnut.

Roll in a mixture of 2 Tablespoons white sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon.

Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake until lightly brown and still soft.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.


I wrap the dough in plastic wrap to chill it in the frig before baking.


It’s a bit tricky to get all the rolled balls of dough to be the same size.


They really do puff up a bit right out of the oven.


Once cooled, they flatten somewhat and they’re good to go!


These don’t last long at our house.

Certain people in the family can’t keep their hands off them!
