I just ate a ball of snicker-doodle dough. It's delicious. Who needs an oven when you can just eat dough.
Should you be craving dough, or cookies, how about some snicker-doodles?
Beat together 1 cup Butter (softened), 1 1/2 cup Sugar, and 2 Eggs. Separately (or not, depending on your style) take care of the dry ingredients: 2 3/4 cup Flour, 2 tsp. Cream of Tartar, 1 tsp. Baking Soda, and 1/2 tsp. Salt - make sure dry and wet ingredients are mixed together and then store in the fridge for an hour or until firm.
Roll dough into smallish balls followed by a swift and enjoyable roll in a mix of cinnamon and sugar (3/4 c. Sugar and 2 tsp. Cinnamon). Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, cool slightly remove from pan and see if you have it in you to share them with guests and/or students. They will thank you. But I won't blame you if you keep them for yourself.
