Hope all of you had a wonderful holiday!
We definitely did. Got to spend some quality time with the fam swimming, watching Brave, having a BBQ, visiting, watching fireworks, and playing games. Love it!
Now we are getting ready for more company because it's my oldest's birthday today--Happy Birthday Seth!! He is 12 and pretty excited about that.
Here is something that is super easy if you need to whip up something delicious and quick.
I've shared before how much I love snickerdoodles so when I found an even easier way to make it, I was stoked. Seriously I could of sat down and ate this entire cake. The cinnamon and sugar crust was a perfect compliment to the cake.
1 cup butter flavored shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine 1/3 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp cinnamon in small bowl. Grease 9x13 pan with non stick spray and coat bottom and 1 inch up the sides with half of the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Set aside.
2. Cream shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add sour cream and mix well.
3. In medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, baking powder, and salt. Add to sugar mixture and stir until completely combined. Spread evenly in 9x13 pan and sprinkle the top with the rest of the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake for 30 minutes (note: you want the center to be moist but not doughy). Enjoy!
