Snickerdoodle Cookies



Snickerdoodle cookies are one of my favorites.  The cookie isn’t just a sugar cookie but a cookie with a great cinnamon sugar and tang from the cream of tartar taste.  It has a nice cookie chew with a little crispness around the edges.  This is my version of this traditional cookie recipe.  I hope you give my version of this traditional cookie a try.

  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.
  • On a parchment lined cookie sheet, using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, roll the dough into balls and then roll into the cinnamon sugar mixture, twice.  Gently press down each cookie slightly and bake for 8-10 minutes.  Remove and either dredge through the cinnamon sugar again or sprinkle some on top.
