Dairy, Egg, and Nut Free Snickerdoodles

These are simple yet tasty sugar cookies that have been around for years.  My kids loved them the first time that we made them .. Rolling the dough balls in the sugar and cinnamon is a perfect job for little hands.    

1 ½ c sugar
2 sticks soybutter softened
½ c cinnamon applesauce
2 ¾ c flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp b powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ c sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Cream together sugar, soybutter and applesauce until blended.  Add the flour, cream of tartar, baking powder, and salt and mix again until fully combined.  The dough will be lumpy, but it will stick together when formed into ball.  

Mix the 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.  Form dough into balls by the tablespoonful and roll in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.  Bake for 8- 10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.  Cool on wire racks.  They are best served warm.  Store the remaining cookies in an airtight container.
