Bet you didn’t guess that these little beauties only have 90 calories each! I was thumbing through my Betty Crocker Cookies & Bars Recipe Cards mag, and came across these. Honestly, I love that all the nutritional info is listed for every recipe. Some of them were very *ahem* jaw dropping.
Whip up a batch of these and you’ll be snickering all the way to the scale.
Don’t Touch My Snickerdoodle!
1 1/2 c sugar
1 c butter or margarine, softened
2 large eggs
2 3/4 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c sugar
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
Step by step
- Heat the oven to 400˚. In large bowl, beat 1 1/2 c sugar and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed (or with wooden spoon) until well mixed. Let your kids stir in with a wooden spoon: flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt until mixed.
- In a small bowl, mix remaining sugar with cinnamon. For each cookie, shape dough into 1 1/4 ball (about 2 Tbsp). Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart.
- Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove to cooling rack. My note: do not overbake! You don't want them to be brown.
