Skinny Snickerdoodles

Sunday was a special day in our house. It was snickerdoodle sunday! I was looking forward to baking these bad boys all day long. Cinnamon is the one spice I really really like. A lot. That's why I love these cookies so much. Another fact: cinnamon is perfect for fall and winter days. Since fall weather allready hit us, I decided to bake snickerdoodles.
I've tried many different recipes, but this one is one of the best. The dough is easy to handle and not too sweet. Recipe from here.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tea spoon baking soda
1/2 tea spoon cream of tartar
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 table spoon corn syrup
1 tea spoon vanilla
1 large egg
3 table spoons sugar
2 tea spoons ground cinnamon
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 190°C.  Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup.  Combine flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar, stirring with a whisk.

Combine 1 cup of sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended.  Add the corn syrup, vanilla and egg; beat well.  Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, beating just until combined.  Cover and chill for 10 minutes.

Combine 3 Tbsp sugar and cinnamon, stirring with a whisk.  With moist hands, shape dough into balls.  Roll balls in sugar mixture.  Place balls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray.  Flatten balls with the bottom of a glass.  Bake for 5 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft).  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes.  Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
