Snickerdoodles


These are tasty little cookies that you can make in a snap! To quickly soften the butter, put both sticks on a microwave safe plate and microwave on 50% power for about 30 seconds.

1 1/2 cup sugar
1 c butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t almond extract
3 c flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t soda
1/2 t cream of tartar
mixture of cinnamon and sugar

Preheat oven to 375.
Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs, one at a time, blending well after each addition. Add vanilla and almond. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, soda and cream of tartar. Add to mixer and mix until combined (don't over-mix.) Shape dough into small balls and roll in cinnamon/sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet and flatten slightly with bottom of measuring cup. Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until bottoms are slightly golden. Cool on rack.

I just love snickerdoodles, but hadn't seen them with almond extract. I'll definitely have to give these a try!
