This recipe is adapted from the cookbook “Milk and Cookies” By: Tina Casaceli. It is easily one of my favorite cookie cookbooks – if you don’t already have it – GET IT – and her recipe for Snickerdoodles is quickly becoming one of my very favorites.
Milk and Cookies Snickerdoodles
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups white all-purpose flour
Start by combinding the softened unsalted butter and solid vegetable shortening. Beat until light in color and fluffy in texture.
Beat in the white granulated sugar.
Beat in the two large eggs, one at a time until combined.
Add in the pure vanilla extract, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir everything together to combine.
Gently fold in the white all-purpose flour.
Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine 1/4 cup white granulated sugar with 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon.
Roll tablespoon size dough balls into the combined cinnamon and sugar mixture before placing onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake one sheet at a time for 12 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool slightly.
