Christmas Cookie Countdown, Day 9

Welcome to Day 9 of my Christmas Cookie Countdown. I’ll be posting a different Christmas Cookie recipe every day from now until Christmas. If you miss any days, just look for the posts labeled Christmas Cookie Countdown. Today’s cookie is Snickerdoodles. These buttery bundles of goodness coated with cinnamon sugar will make your house smell wonderful.

1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
cinnamon sugar mixture

Preheat oven to 375. Stir together flour, soda, cream of tartar and salt. Beat butter for 30 seconds. Add the 2 cups sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs, milk and vanilla; beat well. Add dry ingredients to beaten mixtur, beating until well blended. Form dough into 1” balls. Roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place 2” apart on greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes until light golden and just beginning to crack on top.
