SNICKERDOODLE COOKIES



So glad you could stop by today,with the holidays fast approaching, it's time to get out those favorite recipes & cookies just seem to be one of those things,the days have long gone sine my niece & me made cookies every holiday that rolled around, for she is grown into a beautiful young mother now, geesh! did I just admit how old I was LOL LOL I now carry on the tradition with my granddaughters, geesh! I did it again, LOL



be sure to visit http://blessedwithgrace.blogspot.com/ for more great recipes


the picture was taken from my favorite cookie cookbook called COOKIES! a cookie lovers collection,if you don't have this one I highly recommend it

SNICKERDOODLES



1 1/2c plus 2 tbsp. sugar divided


1c.butter(1 stick) softened


2 eggs


2 3/4c.flour(all purpose)


2 tsp. cream of tarter


1 tsp. baking soda


1/2 tsp. nutmeg


1/2 tsp salt


2 tbsp.cinnamon


pecan halves


***** I never put the salt in my cookies, just don't like the taste, if a recipe calls for baking powder I opt the flour for self rising after all that's what the B.P. is for lol*****


combine the 1 & 1/2c suagr, butter & eggs, beat on med speed


**I beat mine by hand there is enough messed up at this point LOL



add flour,cream of tarter,B.P.,soda,nutmeg,salt, beat till soft dough forms


cover with plastic wrap & chill for 2 hrs or till firm


***LOL I've not noticed that part till now, I've never chilled mine & they turn out fine****


heat oven to 375


in small bowl combine cinnamon & remaining 2 tbsp.sugar


shape dough into balls bout 1"


roll balls in cinnamon mix, place 2'' apart on ungreased cookie sheet


press pecan halves into center



bake 10-12 min or till light golden brown


cool about a min. before removing from cookie sheet



****removing one immediately with a glass of cold milk is acceptable LOL ****
