Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!
You picked a great day to tune in to Ranch Raised because I am about to make your mouth water!
It is Snickerdoodle season! Actually, this classic never goes out of season.
So let’s get started! Just keep it simple with one mixing bowl:
Cream your wet ingredients ¾ cup of room temperature (non-salted) butter, 2 eggs, 2 t of vanilla with 1 ½ cup of sugar. Then fold in your dry ingredients ½ t salt, 2 t cream of tarter, 1 t baking soda, 2 ¾ cup of flour. Let the dough hang out in the fridge for a little bit while you put a couple tablespoons of sugar and a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon in a little bowl. Crank the oven to 400. That quick blast of heat creates the crispy edges of the cookie and the soft, chewy middle! Shape your dough into just bigger than 1 inch balls and roll in your cinnamon sugar. Bake at 400 for around 8 minutes.
I’m warning you, these are cookie perfection! These snickerdoodles are great to hide away in the freezer and pull out when you need them.
I will post the recipe on the Your Ag Network app and website, plus you can find it on the Ranch Raised Facebook page! Thanks for tuning in this week.
Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.
Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her former role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.
You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.
