“Title says it all. DO NOT OVERBAKE THEM, or you will be sorry. Best to pull them out when they look a little raw and let them harden a bit on the cookie sheet. I have given these as gifts, sold them, and made them for guests, but I never have any left over by the end of the day. They are also very pretty, with the nice "broken" top characteristic of Snicks.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Add in eggs, one at a time, along with vanilla, until well-combined.
  4. Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, soda, cream of tartar) in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredient mix into the wet mix in 2-3 stages.
  5. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  6. Use your hands to roll dough into little (ping-pong ball-sized) balls.
  7. Roll dough-balls in the cinnamon/sugar mixture so they're covered all the way around. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 or 3 inches apart.
  8. Bake 7 or 8 minutes, until they have spread out and have JUST started to turn brown. Remove from cookie sheets and place cookies on cooling rack to cool and set a little. If they're not completely cooked when they come out of the oven, let them cook a bit more on the cookie sheets, out of the oven. 7-8 minutes will make a nice, chewy cookie with a little crispness on the bottom.
