Pattern Photos and the Recipe

So today was pattern photo day. Nothing is quite ready for you yet, but rest assured that in the near future you'll have three new patterns to enjoy - two accessories and a garment. Watch this space!

Meanwhile, I dug out that snickerdoodle recipe I mentioned in my previous post. It came, believe it or not, in a bouquet of flowers. Feel free to give it a try. I'll be baking some this afternoon.

Grandma's Snickerdoodle Cookies

1 ½ c sugar
½ c butter, softened
½ c shortening
2 ¾ c flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¼ c sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon

1. Heat oven to 400° F
2. Mix 1 ½ c sugar, the butter, shortening and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
3. Shape dough into 1 ¼ inch balls. Mix ¼ c sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
5. Let cookies cool 5 to 10 minutes. Enjoy!
