1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 tsp. xanthan gum (optional)

When dough is combines, shape into a ball and chill for at least an hour in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 375 F. Then combine sugar and cinnamon in a small dish. Take out the ball of dough and shape small balls of dough, using a small spoon or your fingers. Dip the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar. Bake on baking sheet lined with aluminum foil for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes and then remove from pan using a sharp, metal spatula. Place on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
Tasty but very rich and sweet. My first snickerdoodle attempt but not my last! I did not use xanthan gum but will next time.
