A favorite cookie that will forever be loved…..

I have never met a person who didn’t like Snickerdoodles. Some people like them crispy (me), some folks like them chewy (me). Either way, it will always be a favorite cookie. I have been making them for years. In her Japanese accent, my mother used to ask me “you make a me the sneeka-doo-doo?” For the longest time when she was little, my daughter thought that is what they were called!! I don’t claim to make THE best Sneekadoodoo. All recipes for them are pretty much the same. But I know several people who do claim to make the best. Hooray for you!! All I know is that it is a fun cookie to make and they are so very yummy. Most recipes call for both shortening and butter. Mine does. But I also love them with just butter. It makes them a bit less snickerdoodle-ish, but delicious!
Hope you make some soon….



1  1/4 c sugar
1/2 c shortening
1/2 c butter
2   eggs
2   3/4 c flour
2  tsp cream of tartar
1  tsp baking soda
1/4  tsp salt


2  tblsp sugar
2  tsp cinnamon

heat oven to 400. mix together the sugar, shortening, butter and eggs. Stir in the dry ingredients. Chill the dough for 30 minutes at least. Roll into round balls and roll them in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2″ apart. bake for about 8-10 minutes until set. Remove from cookie sheet immediately. Eat many!!
