Organic Snickerdoodle Cookies

IMG_1594

Since my daughter is away at college, I thought I would send her a care package with some of her favorite cookies. This is the first time I am using almost all organic ingredients. This classic cookie has been around for a long time!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic butter
  • 1 1/2 cups organic sugar
  • 2 organic large eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups sifted organic flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons organic sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Cream together the butter and the sugar, then add the eggs and mix thoroughly. Blend in flour, cream of tartar and baking soda. Chill dough for about an hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in small shallow bowl. Shape dough into rounded teaspoonful balls. Roll balls into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place the balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. I like using parchment paper when I bake, because the cookies don’t stick to the sheet or get too brown. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
