Re: Snickerdoodle Recipe

This is the one I use. I use all whole white wheat flour though. I use a scoop to portion them out on the cookie sheet and then take a flat-bottomed glass to smoosh them out a little, otherwise they don't spread enough for my liking.

Re: Snickerdoodle Recipe

I made these recently, and they are the best snickerdoodles I've ever eaten! From Cook's Illustrated:

2 cups (11 ounces) unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon salt
12 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened but still cool
cup vegetable shortening
1 cups (10 ounces) granulated sugar, plus 3 tablespoon for rolling dough
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, for rolling dough

1. Adjust oven racks to upper- and lower-middle positions (I bake just one sheet at a time, on the middle rack). Preheat the oven to 400F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, shortening and 1 cups sugar on medium speed until well combined, 1 to 1 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add the eggs, and beat again until combined, about 30 seconds. Add in the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, about 20 seconds.

2. In a small, shallow bowl, combine the 3 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon for rolling the dough. Stir or shake well to combine. Working with a heaping tablespoon of dough each time, roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place them on the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.

3. Bake until the edges of the cookies are beginning to set and the center are soft and puffy, 9-11 minutes (I do 9:30), rotating the baking sheets front to back and top to bottom halfway through the baking time (I don't do this). Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets 2-3 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
