Snickerdoodles - Paradise Bakery
In the early 90's, I was a store manager for Paradise Bakery. The baked goods, particularly the cookies, were incredible.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 cups shortening
- 3/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 4 1/3 cups cake flour
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- cinnamon and sugar mix
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream the shortening and the sugar in a bowl. Beat for 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla.
3. Add the dry ingredients. Do not over-mix. Chill the dough for a few hours.
4. Roll out very thickly between plastic. Cut in circles with a glass and lather them with the cinnamon-sugar mix. Put more on cookies when on the cookie sheet.
Bake until barely golden and cracked. Check at around 8 minutes.
