Snickerdoodle Cookies


My mom got this recipe from our neighbors back when we lived in Green Bay. So soft and light and perfect for the holidays. Makes about 6 dozen, and unfortunately you can’t get sick of these bad boys.

Ingredients [cookie]

1 cup shortening [1/4 crisco-3/4 marg]

1 1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 tsp salt

2 Tbls sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

Ingredients [frosting]

2 cups confectioners sugar

3 Tbls unsalted softened butter

4 Tbls almond/coconut milk

1/2 tsp vanilla

pinch of salt

Directions for the cookie

Mix the shortening, 1 1/2 cup sugar and eggs thoroughly. Measure flour by sifting. Blend flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir into creamed mixture. Shape dough into 1 inch balls, roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. These cookies puff up first and then flatten out.

Directions for the frosting

In a bowl sift sugar and then add the remaining ingredients. Beat on medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Spread on cookie
