Cookie Recipes--Snickerdoodles & Oatmeal

I thought I'd share two of my family's favorite cookie recipes. These work great for my husband who does not care for chocolate...CRAZY, I know!

3/4 c. margarine, softened
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 3/4 c. flour
2 c. rolled oats

In large mixing bowl, beat margarine so that it will blend in better; add brown sugar, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Beat until well-combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Beat in flour. Stir in oats. Drop onto cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen.

*These are also yummy with 1 c. of butterscotch chips stirred in.

This next one is fun to do with kids...they enjoy rolling the dough balls into the cinnamon & sugar mixture! :)

1 c. margarine
2 c. sugar
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. cream of tarter
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
3 c. flour
1/2 t. cinnamon

4 T. sugar
2 t. cinnamon

Beat margarine; add 2 c. sugar, baking soda and cream of tarter. Beat until well combined. Beat in the eggs & vanilla. Beat in flour and 1/2 t. cinnamon. Cover & chill for 1 hour. Combine 4 T. sugar & 2 t. cinnamon in smaller bowl. Shape dough into 1" balls and then roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture. Put on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-11 minutes. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.

Happy Baking!!!
