As it may have been mentioned before.....we love cookies. Now I am a chocolate lover....and usually don't waste my time on making non-chocolate involved cookies....but these are very very worth it. Crispy on the outside, soft in the middle......cinnamony goodness.
Snickerdoodles (from Martha Stewart's Cookie Book)
2 3/4 c flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 cup butter (martha calls for unsalted.....I like salted)
1 1/2 c sugar
2 t cinnamon
1. Oven to 350°. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Mix butter and 1 1/2 c sugar on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs. Reduce speed to low, gradually mix in flour mixture.
2. Stir together cinnamon and 2T sugar. Shape dough into 20 1 3/4" balls (I actually like smaller cookies so I can eat more:). Roll in cinnamon and sugar. Space 3" apart on cookie sheet lined with parchment.
3. Bake 12-15 minutes until edges are golden, rotating halfway through. Cool on wire racks.
I love the birds that are always outside my window.....it makes me think that spring may be coming soon.....at least I like to pretend.
I looooove these photos from last fall's Toast catalogue......they make winter seem beautifully cold, and almost.... ok.
It's me!! 1985. Where has the time gone?? Next week I celebrate the big 2-7 (gulp!)
I love that the party is starting.....tonight! Birthday weekend!
We love this song. They ruined it with the lame video, so today you're just getting the song. We listen to this every morning on the way up to preschool--it's my kids' favorite!
What did you love about this week???
