Day 5: Snickerdoodles

Today we went to the lady's house that I mentioned yesterday. It actually wasn't bad at all, she's a very nice lady, she just happens to care about the safety of cats. Matt asked how many "little friends" she has and she said she has 1 outside then 2 inside. And she's been living there for about 25 years! So has the guy from day 3. And the lady we're going to tomorrow has been there for 40 years! Crazy. She said they all kind of look out for eachother. Probably since they've been there so long and there's no chiropractic students coming in and out of their little nook. So i'm thinking we're probably going to end up going through everyone on our street. That's fine though. Today's cookie fits well with today's entry; good but not amazing. I mean it's a good snickerdoodle and all, but chocolate has my heart.

1/2 butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. cream of tartar
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
2 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
Beat butter w/ mixer for 30 sec. Add 1 c. sugar, baking soda and cream of tartar and beat until combined. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in as much flour as you can and stir in any remaining flour. Cover and chill for about an hour or until easy to handle.
Preheat oven to 375 deg. Combine the 2 T. sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar mixture to coat. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10-11 min. or until edges are golden.
Makes about 36 cookies.
