Welcome to my first ever baking post! This was originally posted in the beginning of April, but I made them again recently, and the recipe holds up!
The recipe I used was an old trusted one that I found years ago. The cookies come out soft which I prefer, I don’t like crunchy cookies. I normally half the recipe though, as it’s just me and Rory at home and it would take a while to get through all those cookies. You can find the recipe here. It makes 12 cookies
I took pictures while I baked, and I’m very happy with how the cookies turned out! They’re all gone now, but Rory and I really enjoyed them. I forgot how fun baking is, and how rewarding it is to eat something that you’ve made 😛
- 1/2 cup butter (115 grams)
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 3/8 cup of flour (1 cup, 1/4 cup and 2 tbsp)
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Butter, sugar and eggs get mixed together in a bowl.
Then combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in another bowl, before throwing them in with the butter mixture and mixing it up.
Then, while you cool that mixture in the fridge for a bit for some reason, mix together cinnamon and sugar in a little bowl. You’ll need it to dust the cookies in.
Then you scoop out your mixture into balls and sprinkle some of the cinnamon/sugar mixture onto it. You could also roll them in it, but I like sprinkling. I didn’t roll them very nicely either, but I just want to eat them so I’m not fussy.
I baked them for around 15 minutes cause I forgot to preheat the oven. They came out smelling good, so I was hopeful. The toothpick came out clean as well, so I figured they were done. I also forget how much they expand during this part. Now, I let them cool.
There you have it, a quick little baking post. This was fun to do, I probably could’ve explained the recipe or process more.
Also, like I said at the beginning, I made some more recently.
I had fun filming myself baking. So for those who read to the end, if you have time, you can watch a video of me baking if that’s at all interesting to you. I leave the choice to you 😛
