Erika was the first to show up and I was so glad she arrived early!  She helped me out all night long getting stuff from the oven to the table.  Thanks Erika for all your help in cooking with me!

She brought these cookies:

The Best Snickerdoodles

2 tsp cinnamon

1 3/4 c. white sugar

1 cup softened butter

2 eggs

1 t. vanilla

2 3/4 c. flour

2 t. cream of tartar

1 t. baking soda

1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 375. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 c. sugar and cinnamon, set aside.

Whip butter with an electric mixer until light in color and fluffy. Add remaining 1 1/2 c. sugar and mix. Add in eggs one at a time and mix thouroughly. Next, add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt and mix well. Shape into 1 1/4 inch balls and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture
Mix sugar and cinnamon together thoroughly. Roll balls in the sugar/cinnamon mixture until covered. Refrigerate dough balls at least one hour and up to 24 hours.

Place on an ungreasedcookie sheet 2 inches apart and bake about 10 minutes – outside of cookie will be a pale crust and inside will be soft. Let cook on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes and then move to wire rack.
