Pretty sure most people have eaten a Snickerdoodle before. They're one of those super easy cookies that are made with ingredients you usually have right in your cupboard. And who doesn't love a buttery cookie that's rolled in cinnamon and sugar goodness?? Seriously!
Snickerdoodles are my oldest son's favorite cookie EVER. He begs me to make them. I have been searching for a really soft, chewy, cinnamony, yummy Snickerdoodle recipe for awhile now, trying different recipes and always getting the same just okay results. This recipe is beyond delicious. If you enjoy a cookie like I just described, then you will thoroughly enjoy this one! I absolutely love how they bake up flat and round so you can easily package them up for gifts! I gave these to both of my older boys' teachers along with a candle & gift card for the last day of school yesterday. And of course I doubled the recipe so we had a lovely batch to bring to the cabin and eat all weekend! Which is where I'm typing this post up right now: the beautiful 70 degree weather of Big Bear Lake, California!! Welcome, summer! ;)
Yummiest Snickerdoodle Cookies Ever!
Makes 16-18 cookies (recipe from Lovin From The Oven)
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
- 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
1) In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on high speed. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
2) In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
3) Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
4) Preheat oven to 300 degrees while you let the dough rest for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.
5) In a small bowl, combine the sugar with the cinnamon for rolling.
6) After the dough has rested, roll about 2 1/2 Tbsp. of dough and roll it into a ball. (I used my Pampered Chef cookie scooper). Roll ball into the cinnamon & sugar mixture and press it onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining cookies.
7) Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes and no more. The cookies may seem undercooked, but they will be perfect after they cool!!
