Recipe: Snickerdoodle Cookies


Snickerdoodle Recipe


1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon

For Cinnamon/Sugar Coating:
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix the oil, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, then mix everything together to form the dough. 

Form the dough into 2 inch balls and roll each ball in the cinnamon/sugar coating.
Place cookies a few inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, flattening them slightly if desired. 
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until slightly brown on the bottom. Do not overcook them or they will be really hard. 

I know a lot of recipes call for Cream of Tartar but I don't like that taste or tanginess so I omit it.
