Snickerdoodles anyone?


I know I say this alot (maybe it’s because one can never have too many all-time favorites) but one of my all time favorite cookies are snickerdoodles. I remember as a child, Gramma would announce to my papa and me she was going to bake something for dessert that night; but she would never tell s what. Then, an hour or so later, we’d get a whiff of the enchanting aroma of cinnamon and know immediately we were being treated to Snickerdoodles! Not only is this cookie one that is timeless and amazing, it is a cookie that you will enjoy saying all the time! I mean, come on… Snickerdoodle! It just sounds yummy =)



  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla and eggs.  Mix well. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.  Blend well.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon(I always use a little more cinnamon because I LOVE the taste!).  Roll dough in the mixture and place 2 inches apart on  baking sheets.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set.  Transfer cookies to cooling rack immediately after taking out of the oven and enjoy!
