Thank you so much for all the sweet words and encouragement about my husband and his hurt back.
Let me tell you.
Back challenges are no fun.
In an attempt to cheer him up and make him smile and make his back feel better, I decided to do something that I almost never do.
Bake his favorite cookies on this planet.
His mother’s Snickerdoodle cookie recipe.
He was gone for the day and I wanted to surprise him, so I had the day planned out. I had my checklist. I had all my to-do’s lined up for the day and baking cookies were slotted from 4:00-5:00 pm. Somewhere around noon I decided to pull out the butter to let it soften and put the other ingredients on the counter to save time.
I discovered something that made my heart sink.
This recipe calls for Cream of Tartar.
Cream of WHAT?
I don’t really cook.
I don’t really bake.
And I FOR SURE did not have anything with the word Tartar in my pantry.
What was I going to do?
My husband was gone. Both the twins had the other car.
It was just me and my Cream of Tartarless pantry.
(total aside: I discovered I was out of vanilla, too.)
Now you know how much I love Walmart delivery.
I’ve talked about it before and shared how much we love it and it’s been a lifesaver recently.
Normally, I place the order and get it later that day or the day after that.
THEY HAVE EXPRESS DELIVERY.
You can put in an order and have it delivered to your house in two hours.
And guess what?
Walmart has Cream of Tartar.
It’s so easy to use.
The prices are the same as in the store and the service is available from 8am to 8pm.
And you can use Express delivery on just about anything.
You simply go online to Walmart.com.
Click the grocery button and start shopping.
You can search for anything (like vanilla—especially real vanilla) and place it in your cart and when you are ready?
You just click the check out button.
You get an alert about your order and an email shows up with your estimated arrival time.
And your groceries show up in two hours or less.
Or in my case, it only took 1 hour and five minutes.
Here’s my Cream of Tartar (and a few other things) sitting on my front porch with contactless delivery in one hour and five minutes.
Isn’t technology amazing?
And did I make the cookies?
Yes I did.
Would you like the recipe?
Just in case someone you know loves Snickerdoodle Cookies, too?
The Best Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsps Cream of Tartar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Cream sugar and butter.
- Add eggs, vanilla and dry ingredients (except the 3 Tbsps of sugar and the 1 tsp of cinnamon).
- Mix the 3 Tbsps of sugar with the 1 tsp of cinnamon in a separate bowl.
- Roll into 1 inch balls and cover with sugar/cinnamon mixture.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
It’s so easy to make.
You just follow the instructions and roll the dough in the sugar and cinnamon.
Place them on a cookie sheet and bake.
They turn out just like this.
There were some challenges along this cookie’s journey.
But in the end?
There was an entire platter of snickerdoodles baked from his mother’s recipe sitting on the counter waiting for my husband when he got home yesterday.
He was so happy and he told me his back felt so much better.
I’m sure it was the cookies. 🙂
