They must love to bake in Annapolis Royal, because today's cookies again hail from there. Dorothy McDonald, the Branch Manager, has made Snickerdoodles from Betty Crocker's Best Loved Recipes.
Here's the recipe for this fun-to-say cookie:
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. margarine or butter, softened
1/2 c. shortening
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
2. Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, margarine, shortening and eggs thoroughly. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt until blended. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls.
3. Mix 2 Tbsp. sugar and the cinnamon, roll balls into mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until set, 8-10 minutes. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
Note: Watch these carefully. Definitely check at 8 minutes. They are a nice, light cookie - nothing fancy, but tasty. And so much fun to say Snickerdoodle!
