Comfort Food From the kitchen of Janet Cuddigan: Snickerdoodles


There may be no better way to beat the winter blahs than with everybody’s favorite sugary, cinnamon-y treat.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees 

Mix together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape the dough into balls by using rounded spoonfuls.

Mix the 2 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in this mixture. Place dough balls 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes (or until crispy on the edges and soft in the centers).
