OKAY SO. These cookies are deucedly simple, but as was not the case with the cherry vanilla oatmeal ones, proportion is key. If you don't get the proportions right, these cookies won't turn out soft and fluffy like they should. Yes, I said it. Soft snickerdoodles. What.
|The stuff in the bag is unbleached flour. Because I am ghetto.|
|Bet you've never seen honey in a snickerdoodle recipe, have you?|
Mix dry stuff into a mediumish bowl. Next, cream butter, sugar and honey in a largish bowl. It helps if the butter is way soft, as in nuked in the microwave for 30 or so seconds after having sat out for 30-45 minutes. After that is just incorporated, toss in your eggs and vanilla. You should end up with something super soupy with a few lumps. That is just what you want. Then, and this is very important, pour the dry into the wet in parts. I do it in 3 additions. Once you're done, this batter should be thick enough for you to pick up with your fingers and form into little balls.
|Looks like ice cream; smells like God's love.|
I wouldn't recommend it.
|These cookies are so godly, even Eddy is amazed by the holy light above the cinnsugar.|
Take your balls and roll them around in the bowl of cinnsugar to thoroughly coat each one. Thoroughly.

|The goddess of cinnamon shines down upon thee.|

What else is there to say about these cookies? Other than they are what result from when butter, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla make sweet, sweet love and have about 3 dozen cookie babies.
You like how I mixed the sex metaphor and God metaphor, right? Right?
