Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

You may have noticed that I am on a cookie kick lately.
What can I say... I LOVE cookies. My kids LOVE cookies. My husband LOVES cookies. I LOVE baking cookies.
So you know how fall and baking kind of go hand in hand?
Yeah... you might see a few cookie recipes here in the following weeks.
I already shared my family's favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies with you earlier this week.
Here is our favorite sugar cookie variety... SNICKERDOODLES!

They are yummy, chewy, and super easy to make!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

What You Need:
1 1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup butter, softened (not melted)
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

a couple tablespoons of sugar and
a couple teaspoons of ground cinnamon for rolling.

What You Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter until creamy.
  3. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time.
  4. Beat in vanilla.
  5. In a smaller bowl, mix flour baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 
  6. Stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture.
  7. Chill dough, if necessary.
  8. Combine the additional sugar and the cinnamon in a shallow bowl. 
  9. Form the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheets 2 inches apart.
  10. Bake in preheated oven for 7-9 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is puffed and slightly wet looking.
  11. Remove and cool completely so that the centers can finish cooking.
  12. Store tightly covered.
If you aren't too fond of cinnamon, you can just skip it, and roll the cookies in plain sugar, for sugar cookies.
