Sweet Treats Saturday: Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles! I've made them before but this is just a slightly different version.  What the previous version had in crispiness, this one had in chewiness.  I found this closer to store-bought snicker doodles and it totally fulfilled my craving for a kicked up sugar cookie.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 egg
1/2 sp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
1tsp ground cinnamon

1.  In a medium mixing bowl, bea the butter until smooth (about 30 seconds).  Add the sugar, baking soda and cream of tartar.  Beat until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl.  Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined.  Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer, then stir in the remaining amount with a spoon.  Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a small bowl, combine the 3 tbsp sugar and cinnamon.  Shape dough into 1inch balls (I used a small cookie dough scoop).  Roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 11 minutes, or until edges are golden.  Transfer cookies to racks to cool.  Store in an airtight container.
