Teaching Cooking

I have taught basic cooking to my seven children and to classes of elementary children. When my youngest daughter wanted to learn, I found that taking the recipes and making them into a step-by-step format made it easier for her, so here is a blog to hopefully make cooking easier for the beginner.

1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups sugar

Cream the butter and sugar until smooth. 

Beat in:
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Stir in:
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Once the batter is smooth, shape the dough into balls that are 1 inch in diameter. 

Stir together:
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet. 
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, just until the outer edges are starting to look a little darker than the rest of the cookie. 
Let them sit on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes. 
Remove them to a paper towel to finish cooling.

Makes about 36-40 cookies, if you can keep from eating the dough...  😉
