Friend Fridays: Nathan Hanscome's sprinkledoodle cookies

While making our favorite snickerdoodles one afternoon, my son Nathan asked if we could roll them in the usual cinnamon/sugar mixture AND in sprinkles. They turned out so yummy that Nathan dubbed them sprinkledoodles. So credit for this recipe should really go to Nathan Hanscome, age 7.

Preheat oven to 400
¼ cup softened butter
¼ cup shortening
1 egg
1 1/3 cup sifted flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
½ tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt

Form dough into balls then roll in a mixture of:
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon (or a little more)
1 T colored sprinkles

Place balls about an inch and a half apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes (a little more or less depending on your oven and type of cookie sheet you are using).

Conversation starter: What is your favorite cookie?

Thanks for including Nathan's recipe, Mary. I just showed him the post and he ran in to tell his cousins, "I'm on Mary's blog. I'm famous!" (We're visiting family for spring break.)

I have many of your recipes saved. They're great!
