Snickerdoodles for Christmas

By: 1 December 2010 One Comment

Editor’s note: A couple of weeks ago, Marci Kay Nobles started posting Thanksgiving recipes. Judging from the amount of hits those recipes received, the readers loved them (they ate them up, you might say). So, Marci Kay is back with more tasty recipes (lucky us!) in hopes of helping First Arkansas News readers add a little cheer to their Christmas seasons. She’ll be posting one Christmas recipe a day between now and Dec. 25, so get those ovens ready and enjoy!

I thought since the Thanksgiving recipes went over so well that I would do 24 days of Christmas goodies. Let’s start off with an all time favorite of ours:


Blend together:
1 cup soft oleo
1 ½ cup white sugar
2 eggs beaten
½ teaspoon vanilla

Sift together and stir in:
2 ¾ cup flour
2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon soda
1 ½ teaspoon salt

Chill dough, roll into small balls. Roll balls in a mixture of 1 tablespoon white sugar and 2 teaspoon cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.

Someone's in the kitchen with Marci!
