Our Favorite Snickerdoodles

We've been making this recipe for years!  These snickerdoodles are quick, easy, and super yummy! (We double this recipe for our family)

  • 1 cup Butter (softened)

  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar

  • 2 large Eggs

  • 1 tbsp Vanilla

  • 2 3/4 cup Flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar

  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda

  • 1 tsp Salt

  •  

Cinnamon-Sugar Mixture:

  • 1/4 cup Sugar

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar for 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.  Scrape the sides of the bowl and add the eggs and vanilla. Cream for 1-2 minutes longer. 

  3. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt, just until combined. 

  4. In a small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon. 

  5. If time allows, wrap the dough and let refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.  Roll into small balls until round and smooth.  Drop into the cinnamon-sugar mixture and coat well. Using a spoon, coat for a second time, ensuring the cookie balls are completely covered.  *To make flatter snickerdoodles, press down in the center of the ball before placing in the oven. This helps to keep them from puffing up in the middle. *

  6. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes.  Let cool for several minutes on baking sheet before removing from the pan.
