Snicker Doodles and Ben

I loved when my mom made snicker doodles when I was a little girl. So today I made some for Ben and Madi...nice and warm right out of the oven for an after school treat....they sure enjoyed them.

Snicker Doodles

1 1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

2 cups flour

1 tsp. cream of tarter

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

Mix all together. Roll into 1 inch balls. Roll in a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes.

Ben and Madi enjoying their after school snack...fresh pears and snicker doodles.

Last week Ben was awarded for his perfect grades. That is Mrs. Hall our school principle whom we LOVE congratulating him.

You are building great memories for your kids - just like you had with your mom! My kids loved it when I made them snickerdoodles when they were young. Now it is a favorite treat that I send to two of my kiddoes in college. They LOVE receiving goodies in the mail from home.

What a great way to honor a child -Sounds like you have a wonderful principal. One who understands the importance of recognizing children's accomplishments to help build up their self-esteem. Congrats to Ben!

Thanks for stopping by to say hi and commenting about the little book I am making for my grandbaby. It has been so fun to put together and not hard to make at all - and yes to your question - It is made from a pattern.
Blessings on your day today!
