all-american snickerdoodles

June 30, 2011
I clearly remember my first experience with snickerdoodles.  Upon introduction, I was immediately disappointed that these so-called "snickerdoodles" didn't contain an actual Snickers candy bar.  However, all disappointment vanished with the first bite.  These cookies are of the soft-and-chewy variety, the way all cookies should be in my opinion.  A lightly sweet sugar cookie coated in a warm cinnamon-sugar mixture can't be topped. 
These cookies are a definite All-American cookie and should make an appearance on your table for this July 4th celebration. 
Just as I remember my first experience with snickerdoodles, today will be another day of firsts for me.  I'm headed out to see my newest niece for the first time via ultrasound.  Bleeee!

2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1¾ cups sugar
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
  1. Sift together flour, cream of tartar, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt; set aside. 
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer cream together butter and 1½ cups sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.  
  3. Add eggs, and beat to combine. 
  4. Add dry ingredients, and beat to combine.
  5. Refrigerate the cookie dough for 1-2 hours.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, with one rack in top third and one rack in bottom third of oven. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; Set aside.
  7. In a small bowl, combine remaining ¼ cup sugar and the ground cinnamon.
  8. Form balls of the dough and roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar.
  9. Place balls about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until the cookies are set in center and begin to crack (about 10 minutes,) rotating the baking sheets after 5 minutes.
  10. Let cool about 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to rack to continue cooling. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
