Snickerdoodle Cookies

This is my new favorite recipe for snickerdoodles. The title caught my attention: it claimed to be the Best and now I will use this recipe instead of the one that I had. After trying these, Kyla said these are her "favorite" cookie.

Recipe from: Erika's Sweet Tooth

1 c. butter , (2 sticks) softened
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

Topping
4 Tbls. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars on high. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Let the dough rest for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. In a small bowl combine the sugar with the cinnamon for the topping. Take about 2 1/2 tbls. of the dough and roll it into a ball. Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press it onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining cookies. Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes. Cookies may seem undercooked, but believe me they won't be. It will just be a softer cookie! Let the cookies cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
