snickerdoodles 2Kind of an old fashioned favorite, the Snickerdoodle has long been a favorite in our house. The goofy name is enough to lure you in, but one whiff of the cinnamon-vanilla sweetness and you can never forget these babies. They’re light in both flavor and texture, with a wonderful crumbly chewiness that is just perfect after lunch or as a special treat.

1 c butter
1 1/4 c sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 c flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda

Snickerdoodles, Simply Good Cooking
2 T sugar
2 t cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until creamy.
  3. Add the eggs and beat well.
  4. Add the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar and mix on low, increasing speed as the mixture is combined. Mix only until well blended.
  5. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small, flat bowl. Shape the dough into 1” evenly-sized balls and roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to cover completely.
  6. Arrange balls on the parchment paper at least 2” apart and bake 8 – 10 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown.
  7. Cool them on a wire rack, and see how long they last!
