The Wee Beast and I have finally started our holiday baking. In my family we don't exchange gifts with each other (pressies are just for the kids) but I do bake a crap load of cookies and squares to give out. I also send some over to the neighbours and take some into work for my co-workers.
I thought I would share the recipes with you for all the things I am making this year.
Today we made Snickerdoodles. The name alone is a very good reason to make these and you really should say it as many times as possible. If you've never had these cookies, you should make a batch. They are little vanilla cookies with a crispy exterior and a soft, almost fluffy inside. They are coated in cinnamon sugar before baking. I recommend making a double batch!

1/2 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture.
Hope you get a chance to make some! They are fantastic! xo
