Snickerdoodles

by Cate on December 24, 2004

2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, sift together the flour (I didn’t sift), salt and baking powder and set aside. Add butter and 1-1/2 cups sugar to bowl of a stand mixer. Mix at medium speed for about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs. Reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture.

Stir together the last 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Shape dough into small balls. Then, roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart as cookies will spread.  Bake until the cookies are set in the center and start to crack (they will not brown), about 10 minutes.

Yield: approximately 4 dozen
