This week we had a blizzard! Looks like spring will be delayed by just a bit.
It snowed for two days and it was so beautiful clinging to every little branch. So what to do when you really can’t do much outside? Make cookies! This recipe has been a family favorite for years. They are delicious, with a buttery cinnamon flavor. Perfect with your afternoon tea.
1 cup butter
1 ½ cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 ¾ cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup sugar
Cream the butter with 1 ½ cups sugar in a large bowl. Add the eggs and continue beating. In another bowl combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir into the egg mixture. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minute. Position the rack in the upper third of your oven and preheat the oven to 400 degree. Mix the remaining ½ cup sugar and 1 ½ tsp cinnamon in a shallow dish. Shape the dough into 1” balls and roll in the sugar mixture.
Arrange on your baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
Perfect with your afternoon tea.
