#StyleFoodLove Holiday Baking: SugarDoodles

#StyleFoodLove Holiday Baking: SugarDoodles

Why are snickerdoodles so darn popular?  It’s obviously because of their semi-cake like texture.  And what is the secret ingredient that causes that texture?  It’s cream of tarter (which FYI is a powder, not to be confused with tartar sauce) :).

I made these cookies on a stormy night.  They are quick and don’t require the precision that a lot of cookie recipes require.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter – room temperature (plus 7 seconds in the microwave for optimal softness)
  • 1 and 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 2 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tarter

*Preheat the oven to 350 degrees*

*Cream the sugar and butter together*

*Add the three egg yolks plus the vanilla and mix*

*Add the flour, baking soda and cream of taste and mix well so that a dough is formed*

*Use a tablespoon to measure and your hands to form balls and place about 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets*

*Optional, you can roll the cookies around with sprinkles for a more festive-looking cookie*

*Bake for 12 – 15 minutes (until the cookie looks cracked on top)*

*Cool for 5 – 10 minutes and enjoy!*

About The Author

Natasha Raey

I love seeing the look of shock and disbelief in the eyes of anyone who has known me since before 2012 and has just discovered how much I love to cook now. And I’m a girl who will give credit where credit is due – my boyfriend, Tyler is definitely the impetus behind my newfound love. When we started dating, I had barely even grocery shopped, let alone cooked a meal. On one of our first dates, he thought it would be a good idea to cook together. So I researched some recipes online, and we went grocery shopping together… and that’s how it went the first few months…and then that morphed into me grocery shopping by myself (oh my!) and planning our dinners. I’m now fully obsessed with searching out new meal ideas and pairings, and I anxiously await my weekly e-mails from Yummly. When I can’t sleep, I grab my phone and check out the newest ideas at marthastewart.com. I am a full-on foodie, and I love it! When I’m not cooking, I can be found working as a senior health administrator. I am also the co-founder of SheTalks Global and work in the medical marijuana industry in operations and branding/ marketing.
