A sweet way to say Thank You

IMG_8803 

To make a somewhat long story short, I made Thank You cookies for the parents in my son’s Kindergarten class.

Why am I thanking them, you ask?  Well, a few parents along with myself donated money to help buy the class new crayons.

Okay, now that we got that out of the way.  Can you guess what kind of cookies I made?  Give up yet?  Fine, I will just give you the answer….SNICKERDOODLES!!!

It was sort of hard to pick what kind of cookies to make for the parents.  Being that there are five bagillion different types of cookies!  I was afraid to make anything with nuts in it just in case anyone was allergic.  I didn’t want to make ones with chocolate just in case someone didn’t like chocolate (Honestly, I think you are a freak of nature if you don’t like chocolate *smacking you in the back of the head*).  So, I settled with Snickerdoodles.  It contained no chocolate or nuts. Plus, I don’t know one person who doesn’t like Snickerdoodles.

Snickerdoodles

adapted from: more from magnolia

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoons sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons cinnamon for sprinkling

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine the flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, milk and vanilla and bet well. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Wrap the dough tightly with plaxtic wrap and chill in the fridge for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on to ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion. Sprinkle generously with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake for 12-14 minutes.

Cool the cookies on the sheets for 5 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

To package the cookies:

I had food containers that I bought from Smart and Final and just whipped up some labels on Word.

For the life of me I could not get the labels on straight.  Also, part of the label wasn’t fully printed on on the side.  Hey, give me some credit not too bad for my first time making these labels.
