This is an old post wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy back from 2010. I can’t believe I’ve had this little old blog for that long now! Can you believe it? Thought the pictures could use some updating since cookie season is just right around the corner… Snickerdoodles kind of remind me of cinnamon sugar toast when I was growing up. I used to make some toast in the toaster with a little butter on top and then sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top. It was a nice little quick an easy treat. Just thinking of that makes me want to take an English muffin and do the same thing to that!
Speaking of cookies, what kind would you like to see on this site?
- 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar, stirring with a whisk.
- Combine 1 cup of sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add the corn syrup, vanilla, and egg; beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, beating just until combined. Cover and chill for 10 minutes.
- Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon, stirring with a whisk.
- With moist hands, shape dough into 42 (1-inch) balls. Roll balls in sugar mixture. Place balls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Flatten balls with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 375° for 5 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft). Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

Today, I left home from work early. The program that I use regularly was still having problems. What do I do on my half day off? I bake. Last night at the grocery store, they were giving away Snickerdoodle cookies, and man were they good. There was a lighter recipe that I found on Cooking Light’s website. The original recipe says this makes 42 cookies but I only got 20. What the… ???? So if these are double in size each cookie would be about 100 calories and 2.2 grams of fat. Still not bad, I just have to control myself and not eat the whole batch that I made. 🙂 The batter ended up being a little bit too dry so I added an extra egg white and they turned out fantastico! I love Snickerdoodle cookies and this recipe is a keeper.
