Snickerdoodles: My simple recipe

We made sugar cookies over the holidays, and I had some cookie dough left over, so I made my simple version of Snickerdoodles.

I used the Best Rolled Sugar Cookies recipe from an earlier post (where you can see how they are made when rolled and decorated), or it can also be found here. For these, I form the dough into small balls then roll in cinnamon sugar, and place on a cookie sheet. I press down the ball with the palm of my hand to flatten it a bit. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 8-12 minutes, or until just golden brown on the edges. Being a big fan of a plain vanilla cookie, these are quite satisfying, and they're not too sweet. Perfect with a cup of tea, or coffee. As I was savoring one with coffee, I thought coconut might be a nice addition. I would blend the coconut into the dough first, then follow the instructions above.  Enjoy!
