Kitchen Valance and Snickerdoodles

My kitchen window is visible from the front door, so it really needed some spunk.  Now when you walk in, you have cheeriness waiting for you.

And since yesterday was a Sunday, I had to do some baking.  It was a Snickerdoodle day and the recipe I've been using was passed to me from my mom-in-law...from one of her friends.  Phew, did you get all that?  Anyway, they are awesome and moist and delicious.  Enjoy.

From Barbara Skovensky

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth.  In another bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda.  Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix well.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees (I used 315) and let dough rest for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.  In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.  Take about 2 Tbsp dough and roll into ball.  Roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes and no more.  Allow cookies to cool on pan for 2 minutes before removing to cooling rack.  The cookies may seem undercooked, but will continue to develop after they are removed from the oven.

Makes approximately 3 dozen.
