Snickerdoodles (Frugal Food Thursday)

Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday!  If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below! 

These recipes are also listed at these wonderful linkup parties - thank you to all the hosts for allowing me to link up!

Summer is a great time to cook with the kids.  And kids love to make cookies!

Here's one of my favorite cookie recipes, Snickerdoodles! It's cheap to make, no special ingredients needed.  You probably already have everything you need in your pantry.

And it's fun for everyone to bake - and, of course, to eat!

Here's the recipe:


2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 stick butter, room temperature
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate large bowl, mix butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and stir. Gradually add in flour mixture.

In a small bowl, mix remaining sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into small balls and roll balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on baking sheets. Bake cookies for 10-11 minutes. Let cookies cool for 1 minute, then remove and cool on wire racks.

There are lots more easy and cheap recipes posted here at Frugal FolliesClick here for the list!

Snickerdoodles is one of the best cookies around. When I make them, they disappear quickly.
