Cookie Time

Have you made any Christmas cookies? This recipe is one everyone will love.

Carla's Snickerdoodle Cookies
3 1/2 cups flour
1 T. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 T. light corn syrup
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Topping: In a small bowl, stir 1 cup sugar and 1 T. cinnamon together and set aside

Measure dry ingredients into a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, cream the butter, add sugar and mix thoroughly. Add eggs, corn syrup and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix until blended. Cover bowl and chill for about 1 hour.
Roll balls of dough bout the size of a walnut and roll in the cinnamon sugar topping to coat.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 1/2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
Cookies will puff sightly and the surface is slightly cracked.
Let cookies cool on cookie sheet a few minutes then move to wire rack to finish cooling.

Carla said her dad loves these cookies and she likes to keep him stocked up.
I think they would go great with a cup of tea or cocoa.
Merry Christmas!
