GF Snickerdoodles

Mike helped me make GF Snickerdoodles for my dad for his birthday today. I took my grandma's recipe for Dad's favorite cookie and turned it GF. These As Good As Gluten cookies aren't going to last too long - we're scarfing them down quickly.

·1 cup shortening (½ butter, softened & ½ cup Crisco)
·1 ½ cups sugar
·2 eggs
·2 cups GF all-purpose flour
·2 tsp xanthan gum
·2 tsp cream of tarter
·1 tsp baking soda
·½ tsp salt
Sugar Mixture
·⅓ cup sugar
·2 tsp cinnamon

Mix first 8 ingredients and roll into balls size of a walnut. Roll in sugar mixture. Place 2” apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes at 400˚ until slightly brown and still soft.

Makes 48-60 cookies.
