Saffron Snickerdoodles
1 1/2
cups sugar
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon cream of tartar
teaspoon salt
Dash ground saffron
teaspoon vanilla
cup sugar
Dash ground saffron or 2 teaspoons chai spice blend
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1 1/2 cups sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt, and dash saffron. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. If necessary, cover and chill about 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. In a small bowl combine the 1/4 cup sugar and dash saffron or the 2 teaspoons chai spice blend. Shape dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar mixture to coat. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.
