CINNAMON ROLL SNICKERDOODLES

Best recipe for Snickerdoodle cookies plus the fun addition of a vanilla swirl makes these Cinnamon Roll Snickerdoodles simply irresistible! A combination of butter and shortening yields cookies with the perfect texture- soft and chewy on the inside with crispy sweet cinnamon on the outside. The light vanilla swirl on top is the perfect addition.

Snickerdoodle cookies are a huge favorite at our house! I tweaked my best recipe just slightly and made this cinnamon roll version and everyone went crazy. They’re SO delicious!Cinnamon Roll Snickerdoodles - Butter With A Side of Bread

Cinnamon Roll Snickerdoodles

  • 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 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cinnamon-sugar mixture (3 TBSP sugar + 2 TBSP cinnamon)

Vanilla Swirl:

  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 TBSP milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. 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 scoops into balls.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Whisk all ingredients for vanilla swirl together in a small bowl. Let cool 5 minutes. Transfer to a small bag and snip the corner. Pipe glaze onto completely cooled cookies in the shape of a swirl.
