Snickerdoodle Cookies

Pinit

 
I was in the mood to bake something sweet, but didn’t want to do a full dessert recipe. After all, I do have a wedding dress to fit in very soon! So I did what everyone does when they have a question. I went to Google! I searched ‘dessert for two’, and as it turns out, there is actually a cooking website titled dessertfortwo.com. Just what I needed!

Herb was drawn to the picture of the snickerdoodle cookies. His exact words: “What are those!?” He sounded very excited. Snickerdoodles it is!

1 Dozen Snickerdoodle Cookies

This recipe adapted from Dessert for Two!

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons butter (preferably unsalted)
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash of salt (about 1/8 teaspoon)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

 (I asked Herb to get an egg out of the fridge. I love where he put it!) 

 Recipe Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease your baking sheet or line with parchment paper. Soften the butter and cream cheese – I microwaved mine together for about 20 seconds. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and beat with a hand mixer for about 1 minute until everything is smooth. Add the egg and beat for about 30 seconds until well blended.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.

 Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture until everything is well blended, about 1-2 minutes.

In a separate small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons sugar with 1 tablespoon cinnamon.

At this point, the original recipe states to roll the ball of dough in your hand. However, the consistency of the dough was way too gooey for me to do this! Check it out…

So I just dropped the cookie dough in heaping tablespoons onto the greased baking sheet – there should be 12 cookies. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top of the cookies.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool for 1-2 minutes on the baking pan before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
