I love to bake, cook and entertain. I love trying new recipes and have developed an extensive sometimes exhaustive recipe collection. I am the lazy cook however and look for easy shortcuts when adapting recipes. So no gourmet for me. Easy and delicious is my motto. These are some of my family favorites.

Best Ever Snickerdoodle Cookie
My son adores these cookies. He is not a sweet eater, but he absolutely loves these. They are soft, chewy, and taste of this world. Of all my cookie recipes, they are the best. So easy that you will never want store bought again!
Best Ever Snickerdoodle Cooke - makes about 2 dozen
3 tablespoons white sugar 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon + 1 tsp of cinnamon separate 1 cup dark brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar
In small bowl mix together white sugar with one tbsp of cinnamon. Set aside.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter with sugars. Add tsp of cinnamon and mix to combine. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Mix gently until combined. Don't overmix or you will get hard cookies.
Scoop a spoonful of mix and roll into a ball in your hand. About the size of a tim-bit or donut hole (1 inch). It is a little messy on the hands. but worth it. Roll ball in sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from sheets and let cool on racks.
