Definitely A Santa Cookie: Snickerdoodles

This is definitely the perfect Santa cookie. They are soft, chewy, buttery, and full of flavor.

This is for sure going in my FAVORITES box.

I am stuck on using bread flour in cookies. The flour totally changes the texture of a normal cookie. It's amazing how different they are.

And I am in love with this picture......Isn't it funny how a blogger will take twenty or more pictures of their food and fall in love with just one?

Snickerdoodles

(I doubled this recipe)
1/2 c. butter, soft
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. bread flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. salt

For sugar mixture
2 TBS sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars, egg, and vanilla until smooth. Mix flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt in a bowl. Mix into wet ingredients until smooth. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll in cinnamon sugar mix. Bake for 14-16 minutes (mine took exactly 14) or until cookie turns slightly golden.
