Friday Calls for Cookies!

On Wednesday I got an unexpected day off from work.  Along with getting some much needed relaxing/reading in I decided that I wanted to do some baking.  I made cookies and a new pumpkin muffin.  I cannot say that I was that impressed with the pumpkin muffins, they just were not that pumpkiny (is that a word)!  Anyone have a good pumpkin recipe?

But the Snickerdoodle cookies I made I took the cake.  They were crispy on the edges and soft in the middle.  Not to mention snickerdoodles leave your kitchen smelling heavenly, nothing beets the smell of fresh baked cookies and cinnamon!  Snickerdoodle cookies rank right up there with chocolate chip cookies, and of course  peanut butter cookies.  

This particular snickerdoodle recipe comes from Cooking Light, I do love Cooking Lights online archive of recipes!

Lets get baking.
What you will need:
1 3/4 Cups Flour 
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda 
1/2 Teaspoon Cream of Tarter 
1 Cup Sugar 
1/4 Cup Butter Softened
1 Tablespoon Corn Syrup 
1 Teaspoon Canilla 
1 Large Egg 
3 Tablespoons Sugar 
2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon 
Cooking Spray

Here is what you do :
Combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tarter.  Stir to combine.
In a mixing bowl combine butter and sugar until well blended.  
Then add your corn syrup, egg and vanilla.  Mix well. 
Slowly add your four mixture and mix until well combined.
Now sit your cookie dough in the fridge for 10 min.
While the cookie dough is in the fridge combine 3 Tablespoons Sugar and your 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon.
After 10 minutes in the fridge pull your cookie dough out.  Roll cookie dough into 42-1 inch balls.
Roll the cookie dough balls into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. 
Once your cookie dough balls have been rolled in the cinnamon sugar, place them on a cookie sheet.
Now flatten the cookie dough balls with a water glass.
Bake the cookies for 5 minutes, and allow the cookies to cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet!

Next step, grab a big glass of milk and enjoy a nice warm, fresh snickerdoodle cookie!
Enjoy, and Happy Friday
A bit of inspiration!
