Joy's Snickerdoodle Recipe

Hi everyone! This blog post is the last one before Christmas, so naturally it's going to be Christmas oriented. I can't believe Christmas is already almost here! I mean, it just left, right? Anyway, let's get started with our "days till" section:

It is: 1 day till Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie is released!!!
It is: 6 days till Christmas!
It is: 13 days till 2014!

Now for movie updates! This week, some information on the upcoming film Jurassic World (formally Jurassic Park IV) was revealed: we now know when the film's going to start filming! According to a tweet from Kauaimovieguy, who reports movie news for the island, the film's finally going to start filming in early March of 2014! Here is the tweet:
Bob Movie Guy Jasper @KauaimovieguyRevised update....JP4 begins filming on Kauai early March... :)
I'm so excited! This probably means we can be expecting some more affirmative news on the film's cast pretty soon.

Also, thanks to word from the film's director, Colin Trevorrow, Phil Tippet, the dinosaur supervisor from Jurassic Park, is coming back for the new movie!

As many of you might recall, Walking with Dinosaurs: 3D is coming out on the 20th . . . that's tomorrow! I probably won't see it till it comes out on DVD, but it's nice that the movie is coming into theaters. Here are some clips from the movie itself:

Now, you can read a special recipe as today's article written by my co-author, Joy Hammond:

Here is a recipe for your Christmas table: SNICKERDOODLES!

These Snickerdoodles look delicious!

First you will need:
  • 1 ½ cups of sugar
  • ½ cups of butter or margin, softened
  • ½ cups shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ¾ cups of all purposed or unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • Heat the oven to 400 Fahrenheit.
  • Mix the sugar, the butter, shortening, and eggs in a large bowl. Then stir in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.
  • Shape the dough into 1 ½ inch balls. Mix ¼ cup of sugar and cinnamon into a small bowl, then roll the dough balls in it till it's covered. Place the balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Finally bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set, and remove the tray from oven. Let it cool and then enjoy!
Well, in closing today, I'd like to leave you with this: from my house to yours . . . HAVE A MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
