I know! Snickerdoodles are rolled in sugar and cinnamon. I made these inside-out. I covered the dough and then rolled them into pinwheels!
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup butter or margarine, softened
½ cup shortening
2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, shortening and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.
Roll dough into a rectangle. Mix 1/4 cup brown sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle the dough with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Roll dough tightly into a log and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill for a few hours or overnight. The dough can also be frozen until needed. Cut into rounds about ¼ inch think. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
