Vanilla Bean Snickerdoodles
There's another possibility though. You could switch it up and find out that Grandma's recipe was good, but just not quite as good (no offense, Grandma). It might challenge your beliefs. The ground might shake beneath you. You could start to question things you once held as truths. Or you could just start to work this new recipe into the rotation and still go about your days doing the same-old same-old.
cookbook will have you drooling and setting butter out on the counter to soften, immediately. You should buy it -- I'm not getting paid to say that - it would be welcome, but I'm not ;)
VANILLA BEAN SNICKERDOODLES
Recipe from Joy the Baker
2 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 vanilla bean (seeds scraped)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 c. sugar
1. Whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
2. With a stand mixer, beat together butter and sugar. Add in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla extract and seeds from 1/2 of one vanilla bean.
3. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture.
4. Mix together cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Roll cookies into small balls then roll in cinnamon sugar. Place on cookie sheet (give plenty of room between cookies because they will spread a lot).
5. Bake at 350˚ for 12-14 minutes.
