Saturday Night Snickerdoodles

They're Saturday night Snickerdoodles only because that's when I made them.

2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup shortening
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ cups sugars, plus 3 tablespoons
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Put the flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl (set aside).

With a handheld or standing mixer, beat together the shortening and butter. Add the 1 ½ cups sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour mixture and blend until smooth.

Mix the 3 tablespoons sugar with the 1 tablespoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll the dough, by hand, into 1 ½ -inch balls. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar. Flatten the balls into ½ -inch balls (make sure not to flatten too thin), spacing them evenly on an ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until light brown, but still moist in the center, about 8 minutes.

Recipe from food network.

P.S. completely not related to snickerdoodles. Dan and I were watching food network and saw our very own Triple-XXX restaurant on one of the shows....pretty cool.
