Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles

 

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat  pastry flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 330 F. Combine dry ingredients and mix very, very well.
  2.  In a separate bowl, melt the butter, stir in vanilla and milk.
  3.  Pour dry into wet and mix again.
  4.  Form balls.
  5. For true snickerdoodles, roll each ball in a mix of cinnamon and sugar (either equal parts OR two parts sugar to one part cinnamon).
  6. If you want soft cookies, you’ll need to get the balls very cold. (So roll the balls, cover in the cinnamon-sugar, then fridge until cold.)
  7.  Bake for 9-10 minutes. They’ll look way underdone when you take them out, but that’s perfect.
