Summer vacation is here and I've started baking again!!!

First up: Snickerdoodles. My son says I make the best snickerdoodles in the world. Even though I think he has a pretty small point of reference, I'll take that praise anyway. They are delicious.


1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups
Domata Flour
1 teaspoon cream of tarter

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Cream the shortening and butter together. Add 1 1/2 cups sugar and mix until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Mix in the eggs. In a separate bowl whisk together the Domata flour, cream of tarter, soda and salt. Gradually add to sugar mixture. Mix thoroughly. Refrigerate at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 400ยบ. In a small bowl mix together 2 tablespoons sugar with the cinnamon. When dough is chilled use cookie scoop to make small balls. Roll balls in cinnamon and sugar mixture and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes.
