Granny's Favorite Cookies

Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie--if you recall I posted a recipe for Snickerdoodle Muffins on November 6, but here is the original cookie recipe:


  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon or 2 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Heat oven to 400. Beat eggs with fork, stir in oil, vanilla and lemon rind (if using). Blend in 3/4 cup sugar until mixture thickens. Blend flour, baking powder, and salt; add to mixture. Roll into 1 inch balls. Mix 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls in sugar mixture. Place on baking sheet, cris-cross with fork. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove immediately from baking sheet.
