THE BEST SNICKERDOODLE COOKIES

The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe Ever. Butter With A Side of Bread

My oldest son adores Snickerdoodles so I make them often. I’ve used the same recipe for years- if it ‘aint broke and all that. It’s easy and my kids love spooning the sugar over the dough.

Cream of Tartar is one of the ingredients that gives Snickerdoodles its distinct flavor. Nevertheless, if you’re out and don’t want to run to the store, you can substitute baking powder instead.

The BEST Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening (I used butter flavored Crisco)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups flour + 2 TBSP flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cinnamon-sugar mixture (3 TBSP sugar + 3 TBSP cinnamon)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.

Mix the 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture, then spoon cinnamon-sugar mixture over each cookie, turning once and doing the same on the other side. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake 8 minutes exactly! Remove from oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheets for an additional 2 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!
