Recipe #48: Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies  
Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies recipe

I'm moving into a new apartment in a few days with 3 other girls. One I know pretty well, one I've only met once, and one I've never met before. I decided to bake some cookies as a welcome gift with some extras to give to old friends as they return. I decided on snickerdoodles, since I have all the ingredients.

These were an adventure, considering how easy they were. I think the butter was too soft because first of all it was hard to form them into balls (and at that point I should have realized and stuck them in the fridge or freezer or something but I didn't think of it) and then the cookies ended up being pretty flat and all clumped together even though the amount I used was TINY and they were far apart. I experimented with size and cooking time for the batches and ended up taking pictures. Since each batch had fewer than I normally would for regular dough, it took more batches. Improvement each time, though, so it was worth it!

They were soft and delicious, but I would like to try them again sometime with the dough being a lot better. I'm curious how it would be if not quite as thin. The butter was my fault, as I had skipped over the egg part so when I creamed the butter and sugar, it was hard to do. I heated the butter up a bit more before realizing that ooops, no eggs which I then added. If I had added them originally, I think it would have been the right texture and I wouldn't have decided to melt the butter further.
