And, even though I’m 32 years old, because of this:
And this, too:
Many other reasons, also, but this is a food blog, so I will stop.
I got to be at our last NFC Championship game during the 05/06 season, and I can honestly say that when we won, it was one of the funnest moments of my life. The only time I can recollect, ever, hugging a whole bunch of drunk, crazy strangers.
This year, I will be watching from the couch, but when I saw a recipe for Seahawk Doodles on Seattle Flour Child’s blog, I knew I had to make them.
I almost never stray from my favorite snickerdoodle recipe, but I am glad I did. These were very good. Different from my usual, not as thin. Big, soft, plump. Really, really good.
Give these a try for the big game on Sunday in Seahawk solidarity.
Recipe from Seattle Flour Child
1 cup room temperature butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 3/4 cups of flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cream together butter, sugar, and eggs until light and fluffy. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt, and mix until combined.
Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture, coating each one well. Place on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
Enjoy! And Go Hawks!
