Christmas Cookies!

Christmas isn't Christmas without cookies! Growing up we would always go to Indiana to spend the holiday with my mom's family. It was great to see family and maybe even have a white Christmas but the best part were Grandma's cookies! She would have tins all over the house with different kinds of cookies. My favorites were her oatmeal cookies and her snicker doodles!

Here is her snicker doodle recipe:
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
2 tbsp sugar & 2 tsp cinnamon mixed together

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream sugar and butter together, add eggs. Sift together flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Stir into sugar, butter, egg mixtures. Form dough into balls and roll in sugar / cinnamon mixture.
Bake 10-12 minutes.

What is your favorite Christmas Cookie?

  1. Yum. well, seeing as how I don't really know how to make any cookies except chocolate chip, I'd have to say my favorite is anything other people bring to the christmas party!
