Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. I love the crisp crunch you get when you bite into them. I love having them with tea, they are just plain old good!
If you’d like to try and make them here’s all you’ll need.
2 3/4 cups all-purpose gluten free flour (I make my own the recipe can be found on the blog) plus 1 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup unsalted Butter at room temperature
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
cinnamon candies -optional
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine eggs,sugar and butter until well incorporated about 3 minutes. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Then combine flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and xanthan gum. Slowly add flour mixture about a cup at a time to the egg and butter mixture. When mixed well remember to scrape the bottom and sides. Set batter aside
In a separate bowl stir together 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon.
Take batter and shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar cinnamon mixture. Place 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven let sit for about 5 minutes then place onto cooling racks till completely cooled then place into airtight containers and enjoy!
NOTE: I sometimes take a cinnamon candy and place in the center of cookie before baking.
