Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles

December is here and that means that the holiday baking season is now upon us! I wanted to ease into the baking and since I was craving something with cinnamon, snickerdoodles seemed like the perfect thing to start with. Snickerdoodles are a cookie that is rolled in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon before baking and they are so addictively good! One of the things that is so amazing about snickerdooles is how easier they are to make; I mean really, all that needs to be done is mix the wet ingredients, mix the dry ingredients, mix them together, roll, coat and bake. All said and done you will be passing those tasty little treats back an forth between your hands, blowing on them to cool, in less than 20 minutes!

You might want to double check either the butter or flour amounts...I had to add way more than 1 1/4 cups flour (not sure exactly how much, sorry!) to get them to stick together correctly. But after that, they were delicious!

I love snickerdoodles but my grandmother usually sends them to me as part of a care package so I've never actually had to make them myself. Maybe I'll give it a try this year.

An oldie but a goodie! We LOVE snickerdoodles. And let's face it, who doesn't love just saying "snickerdoodles?" :)

Liz: I am ad that you got them to work. Both amounts are correct and the ones that I have been using. The 1/2 cup of butter is also 1 stick or 8 tablespoons.

Adding these to my holiday list of "things to cook and bake" - they look absolutely fantastic. I am a terrible baker (things always burn or come out raw), but I think this might be my saving grace. Happy holidays!

Have been a fan of Snickerdoodles since my childhood when my mother made them. But, where is the cream of tarter. That's what makes them Snickerdoodles.
