Monday's Sweet Stuff Sunday Post On Tuesday ;) With a Side Of Horseplay....

Oh my! I just realized it has been THREE MONTHS since I did a 'Sunday Sweet Stuff post! Since I just realized this yesterday evening, I decided to remedy that with a batch of snickerdoodles!
I did a few when I was able to move back home, but then I guess with the new horse handling training stuff, saying 'yes' to more things like potluck dinners, spontaneous friend outings and, getting my Etsy store back up and running, I totally kindof forgot about making the Sunday sweets! I haven't forgotten to eat my fair share of sweets, just haven't thought of making them! Ohhhhhh yeah, Christian brings me home at least one decadent goodie a week from the diner! 

The dough for the snickerdoodles has to be refrigerated for an hour, so while the dough was in the fridge, I decided to go outside and play with Rose and we were getting a little break from the rain, so it was perfect! She was in a very playful mood! With all the rain, I haven't gotten to work with her like she got used to during the very dry months of August and September. She basically let me know that she misses all those fun play dates and I will have to just get a new rain coat and suck it up after this super amazing greeting.... 
The pictures were really bad quality as it was around dusk and all I had on me was my iPhone AND I had no idea I would be greeted like this, so I decided to switch over to video and this is what I got:
Alllllright, now back to the sweets....
The holidays are right around the corner, and I will be posting more sweet stuff posts, just because I REALLY get into baking when the weather turns cool and the oven can be on without getting the house too hot. Thanksgiving is just one month away, and Christmas is only two months away - that being said, this is one of my favorite wintertime cookies.... the snickerdoodle.

What you need:

1/2 C butter, melted
1/3 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 C Cup 4 Cup GF Flour
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tarter

For the dusting/ dipping of the balls:
1/4 C sugar
1 Tb cinnamon

 In a large bowl, pour melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar and mix at low speed until completely combined....
 Scrape sides of bowl and add egg and vanilla and mix for about a minute on low...
 ...then add the flour, cream of tarter, and baking soda and continue mixing....
 ...scrape sides of bowl and dump onto wax paper and put in fridge for about an hour....
 After an hour, take the dough out,
 slice it into workable pieces,
 and form into small balls - 1 1/2 inch balls will do!
 ...dip in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon, and put on cookie sheet sugar side up... I use a sheet of parchment paper to keep the clean up easy, and I do a little thumb press on each ball just to keep them from rolling around on the cookie sheet.
 Bake in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes....
