Snickerdoodles

My husband is not a big sweets person, but when it comes to these tasty goodies, even he just can’t resist. Add them to your holiday baking repertoire!

½ cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar, plus 2 T, divided
1 egg
½ tsp vanilla
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup of sugar with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar; slowly mix into the sugar mixture until a soft dough forms.

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in cinnamon-sugar. (Hint: Make sure dough is well-chilled or it becomes sticky) Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cool completely.
