garage sales and snickerdoodles

We've been busy this last week getting for a garage sale - then we had it Friday and Saturday. It turned out pretty good - except Saturday it rained, so there weren't many customers. But we had fun!

Nikki had a little "Snack Bar"

I also thought I'd post the recipe for the snickerdoodle cookies that Nikki made for the sale! These are super good!!
  • 1 C. soft shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 C. sugar
  • 2 3/4 C. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 2 T. cinnamon
Mix together shortening, sugar, and eggs. Sift flour and measure; add cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt; sift again. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix well. Form into balls about the size of a walnut. Place about 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet after they have been rolled in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake 10 minutes in 350 degrees oven.


Oh, and I wanted to let you know that I added some new songs to my playlist on the bottom of my sidebar. There are some great songs on there - so turn up the volume!

Wow, looks like a lot of fun. In our community, this weekend is the yard sale weekend, but we didn't participate, because we didn't have much to sell! :P

We had a garage sale 2 wks. ago and sold baked goods too, and snickerdoodles were one of the things we sold too!

Looks like you had some fun, (and hard work) But at least you do get to rest while the costumers look around. :)
