Snickerdoodle Cookies

These are my favorite cookies! I love the flavor of cinnamon and can’t get enough of it. Be careful because these are addictive! This is a great treat that my whole family loves.

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer until mixed thoroughly (it should be nice and creamy). Next, add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt – blend well. Shape into 1 1/4 inch balls.

  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Mix sugar and cinnamon together thoroughly. Roll balls in the sugar/cinnamon mixture until covered. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart and bake 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!

    I had to link to your blog (although I don’t need a recipe for snickerdoodles) because I have to check out the blog of anyone who professes snickerdoodle love!

    Here are a couple of recipes you may or may not have already seen but as a fellow snickerdoodle lover I wanted to share them with you. If you have already seen these recipes disregard if not …ENJOY!

    Snickerdoodles have ALWAYS been my absolute favorite- ever since I was a kid. I think I could down about a dozen of them dunked in a tall glass of milk (if no one was looking!)

    Last fall I made Maple Snickerdoodles. They were good, but just not as good as the original!

    Ohhh yummm! I love these things. Problem is some of the dough doesn’t make it to the pan. Then some of the cookies don’t make it to the wire rack to cool. By the time I plate them, I have about half the number of cookies I’m supposed to.

    My fiance loves snickerdoodles more than any other cookie in the world, so I make them all the time. Our recipes are very similar! I use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup crisco (gross, I know, but he loves them) and substitute lemon juice for the cream of tartar. Yum!

    These turned out perfect. My husband loves them and I am hoping they will be a big success at a play group with the kiddos tomorrow.
