Making Snickerdoodles at Your Apartment by The Villages, FL

Baking cookies is a wonderful way to spend a weekend afternoon. There are so many recipes for baking cookies that it’s easy to experiment with different ingredients and tastes. Cookies are well-loved by almost everybody, so they also make for a great gift for any occasion.

Snickerdoodles are a special type of cookie that satisfies just about everyone. They have a cinnamon sugar coating and a delicious, sweet buttery flavor. Here are the ingredients you will need to make snickerdoodles at your apartment by The Villages, Florida:

• 1½ cups sugar

• ½ cup butter, softened

• ½ cup shortening

• 2 eggs

• 2¾ cups all-purpose or unbleached flour

• 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

• ¼ teaspoon salt

• ¼ cup sugar

• 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees and then mixing the 1¼ cups of sugar, butter, shortening, and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Then, in a separate bowl, mix together the ¼ cup of sugar and ground cinnamon. Begin shaping the dough into balls, and then rolling them in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place the balls on a cookie sheet, two inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

You can make snickerdoodles with ease in our spacious, updated kitchens at PepperTree Apartment Homes. Our apartments come in three different professionally chosen color schemes (beige, taupe, or grey), with color-coordinated walls and trim, ceiling fans, carpeting, fixtures, and hardware.
