Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Heb 12:1-2 (NLT)

Grandma's Snickerdoodles

These are my husband's favorite cookie and they are the ones we make for Santa every year.

This is one I like doing with my kids because they can get their hands dirty making the balls.


You will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (you may need a little more sugar and cinnamon)

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter or margarine and eggs. Mix well.

  • Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Blend well. 

  • Shape dough into 1 inch balls. 

  • Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a shallow dish. Roll dough in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. 

  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on a cookie rack. 

These are awesome when they are still warm!

Also, my daughter's preschool xmas party is tomorrow so I shrank down and printed off more 
snowman wrappers and used them on boxes of smarties. Pretty easy for something pretty cute!
