Snickerdoodles contain cream of tartar, an item I never used in anything else. A little digging on the Internet revealed that cream of tartar was first discovered as a by-product of wine making. Crystals of cream of tartar (aka potassium bitartrate) form on the underside of a cork in a wine bottle kept chilled in wine cellars.

One of my favorite thing about Christmas is the baking traditions that have grown up around this holiday. Top of that list for me is Christmas cookies. I adore cookies and always have. In fact, my very first attempt at baking (somewhere around the age of 7) was to make sugar cookies.
This is a recipe I came across years ago. A friend had brought it as a snack to a Bible study and I just had to have the recipe. I like to make this when I have a sudden craving for something hot and cinnamon-y. Try it and you’ll be hooked too.
