The perfect fall treat....
Over the weekend, I was trying to figure out the perfect desert to make for my family. I did not want to make anything that required to be placed in the refrigerator overnight and I did not want to make anything that would have to be reheated before eating. Pretty much every recipe I had in mind. I was missing an ingredient for. YIKES! Except for one recipe! I had all of the ingredients for one of my husband’s favorite cookies. This is the perfect cookie for the cold fall/winter nights.
Ingredients: (Adapted from RecipeZaar)
1 cup of butter room temperature (1 cup= two sticks of butter)
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 (heaping) teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
(Cinnamon sugar mixture)
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Pre- Heat oven to 350ºF
Combine dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar
Mix Wet ingredients (except for the vanilla): Sugar, eggs and butter
(Once the wet ingredients are fully combined add the vanilla extract)
Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients
Once all of the ingredients are fully combined, place the cookie dough in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
Mix 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon and ¼ cup of sugar
Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
