Thanksgiving Cookies

Good Morning! It’s Friday!!! WOOHOO!!!

Hope everyone had a good Thursday! Just one more week until Thanksgiving.

In the wake of Thanksgiving coming, here is some yummy cookies to bake for friends and family to enjoy!

Snicker Doodles in 8 Simple Steps:

Recipe Time:

1/2 Cup Shortening and/or unsalted butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1 1/3 cup sifted flour

1 tea spoon cream of tarter

1/2 tea spoon baking soda

1/8 tea spoon salt

In a separate bowl:

1 Table spoon sugar

1 Table spoon Cinnamon

A Little Advice:

Gather up all your ingredients before you start; to make sure you have everything. It isn’t good to stop in the middle and run to the store. I have done that. Doesn’t come out as good.

While mixing all your ingredients please do not forget to set the oven to 400 degrees F or 204.4 degrees C.

Step One:

Mix together Shortening (Crisco) and Sugar until mixed well.

Step Two:

Add the egg. Mix all the wet ingredients together first.

Step Three:

Sift Flour into a separate bowl with Cream of Tarter, Salt, & Baking Soda.

Step Four:

Add the wet and dry ingredients together. Then mix well.

Step Five:

In a separate bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.

Step Six:

Take the cookie dough and roll into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll cookie dough balls into the sugar and cinnamon mixture to lightly coat.

Step Seven:

Place on a cookie sheet lined with PARCHMENT PAPER (which is not wax paper. Please DO NOT use WAX PAPER!!!!!) far enough a part they will not touch when they bake.

Step Eight:

Let Cool & ENJOY!!

As another option instead of rolling them in your hand. You can roll them flat and use leaf cookie cut outs or any other shape. Just be gentle.

Hope you all enjoyed this. I love to bake, but never would do it as a profession. I give a lot of props to the people who do this stuff for a living.
