If it is after midnight and so it must be time for a simple all time great cookie after all the cakes and pies through the Holiday Season.  A friend of mine kept calling my dog Roxy ‘doodle’ and all I could think of were these old-fashioned favorites.

  • 1/2 C. Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 1/2 C. Shortening
  • 2 Lg. Eggs
  • 2 3/4 C. All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 t. Cream of Tartar
  • 1 t. Baking Soda
  • 1/4 t. Salt

    I do not drop a comment, but after reading through a
    bunch of comments on this page Snickerdoodles “Deja Vu” Cook.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it simply me or do some of these comments appear like they are left by brain
    dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing on other online
    social sites, I would like to follow anything
    new you have to post. Would you list of all of all your shared sites like your Facebook page,
    twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
