I Love Christmas Time!

Today I made Snicker Doodles for Scotty... He may not be getting very many :/ They are really yummy!

Here's the recipe if you wanna try em out. (Mom's recipe)

Snicker Doodles
1/2 C softened butter
1/2 C shortening
1 1/2 C sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 C flour
2 t cream of tartar
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 T sugar
2 T cinnamon

Blend the first four ingredients together. Then add the rest, except the T of sugar and cinnamon. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and roll the cookies in it. Bate at 400 on an ungreased cookie sheet.

The recipe didn't specify a time amount... I think I did mine for about 10 minutes. And I ALWAYS turn my oven down lower. I think I baked this around 365 ish.

In other news, we are doing nothing out of the ordinary. We bought a REAL Christmas tree and it smells SOOO good!!

And we're going to Washington for Christmas. We leave in just 10 days and I am beyond excited! We'll be there for over a week and it's going to be so nice to spend time with my family :)
