Well, hello there!
I have a great little cookie recipe for you today.
I know it’s dismal old, diet happy January.
Yes. I do know.
The sun here in Salt Lake City has been missing in action for weeks now. I happened to be driving home from a family funeral in Southern Utah a few days ago….and good gracious! The yucky inversion around this city of Salt Lake is down right hideous!
It was nice to be in a small town for a few days…
…and gaze at a blue sky.
Spending time with my extended family wasn’t half bad either.
Alright, I’ll admit…it was down right fabulous.
It was pretty much the funniest funeral I have ever attended.
And, I mean no disrespect.
But, my relatives down south are side busting funny, I tell you.
I can honestly say I have never heard so many funny stories…
….or so many swear words declared over the pulpit
in a Mormon Church
…in my life.
To my relatives down south I say, I love ya!!!!!
It was great to be with you.
These buttery-cinnamon sugary-chewy cookies are really to die for.
To live for.
this very day, if it suits your fancy.
I dare say they are one of the best cookies I have ever made.
Hope you love them!
Time: 1 hour
Yield: 48 cookies
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
1 C butter, softened
1 1/2 C sugar
3 C flour
2 t cream of tartar
1 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1/8 t salt
Cinnamon Sugar Coating:
3 T sugar
1 1/2 t cinnamon
1. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes folks. Add the eggs and cream for about 2 minutes more. This is a really important step. Creaming the dough at this point will give you soft chewy cookies later on in the game.
2. In a separate bowl combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add it to your creamed mixture. Mix until all ingredients are combined.
3. In a small bowl mix together the cinnamon sugar coating. Roll the dough into balls and roll it around in the coating.
4. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Don’t set them too close to each other. You want them to have room to spread out and not have to touch each other while they bake.
5. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. You only want to bake them until the outsides crack. Then take them out and let them finish cooking on the hot cookie sheet. Enjoy!
