I love making cookies.

There are so many varieties you can make.

Drop, rolled, shaped, bars… So no matter what you are in the mood for there is ALWAYS a perfect cookie calling your name.

I think Snickerdoodles can “fit the bill” for a number of taste buds. They are light, simple, not too sweet. You can make them crisp or chewy.

Y’all see what I mean? What’s NOT to like?

*This makes a BIG batch*

2 C. Shortening
4 Eggs
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
4 tsp. Cream of Tartar
3 C. Sugar
4 1/2 C. Flour
2 tsp. Almond extract

Preheat oven to 350.

In a mixing bowl beat together the shortening and sugar on high until light and fluffy.

Add in the soda, salt, cream of tartar, almond extract beat again for another minute.

While mixing add in eggs one at a time.

Last, add in the flour one cup at a time.

If dough is too sticky, add 1/4 cup of flour at a time until the dough is not sticky.

Roll dough into desired sized balls and roll into cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Place onto a sprayed baking sheet, lightly press down on each ball with your palm.

Bake for 8 minutes

*bake longer for a crisp cookie*

A cookie for every personality,
