When my funds are low and I need a sweet for friends who are coming over or just to have something to soothe my sweet tooth, I make a batch of snickerdoodles.

  • 1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2/3 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar mixed with 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add the egg and mix well. Add all the other dry ingredients(except for the sugar mixed with cinnamon--add this to a bowl all by itself) until everything is combined.

Shape the dough into balls the size of a walnut, or an egg yolk. Roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place the coated balls on an oiled cookie sheet. Using the bottom of a smooth cup or glass, press the dough down to flatten the cookies slightly. Bake them at 400° for 10 minutes.
