With all of the staying at home lately I’ve been doing more baking and I though that I would take the opportunity to update the photos for one of my favourite cookie recipes that I recently made, snickerdoodles. Snickerdoodles are basically a sugar cookie where the dough is formed into a ball and pressed into a mixture of sugar and cinnamon before being baked. The result is a soft and chewy cookie that has a coating of crispy sugar and cinnamon that melts into your mouth! Yum! Pure bliss! These cookies are super easy to make where you mix the wet ingredients, mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet into the dry and then form the balls, roll them in the sugar and cinnamon and bake. In less than 30 minutes you can be enjoying a still warm batch of freshly made snickerdoodles!
Sugar cookies rolled in cinnamon and sugar that are oh so simple and yet oh so good!
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Cream the butter and sugar and then beat in the egg followed by the vanilla extract.
- Mix the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
- Form the dough into balls 1 inch across, roll them into a mixture of the sugar and cinnamon and place them on a baking sheet.
- Bake in a preheated 375F/190C oven for 8-10 minutes.
I love snickerdoodles! (Tt's a shame that they're often overshadowed by other cookies.) Yours look delicious!

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!
These are one of my favourite cookies too! I am not much of a baker, I prefer to cook but this recipe is so easy and so delicious looking I have to try! Thanks for this recipe, you made my day!
These look delicious! I love snickerdoodles.

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.

This looks completely yummy. I love cookies and really want to attempt this one.
Snickerdoodles really are one of the best cookies out there! You just can't beat the combination of cinnamon and sugar.
I've still never made this classic cookie! So weird. Can't wait to try!
One of my favorites! I can eat these any time of the year.

Looks great! Tis the season for cookies!
Oh I am in love! Snickerdoodles are my all time favorite cookie! I will try this recipe the weekend so I can have my favorite cookie nearby while playing Skyrim! Thanks!
My son's favorite cookie. So glad you don't use cream of tarter…never liked the zing flavor from it.

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.

I tried to make these once and they did not turn out, I will give this recipe a try.

Snickerdoodles used to be my absolute favorite cookie when I was a child.
I featured your blog in my Follow Friday post for today.

I've never made snickerdoodles, but I love them. Now I have a good recipe.:)
I always made them with marachino cherries in the middle… is my family just weird? I NEVER see them made like that in the blogosphere…

Looks great. I love making snickerdoodles. Love the concept for your blog.

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.
Just gorgeous as always!
I've sampled TONS of recipes from various sites. This is by far the very best Snickerdoodle out there and my number one go-to.
Maggie Weston says
Could you please explain the discrepancy i.e the baking soda and cream of tartar in the ingredients and the baking powder in the directions .
Is your recipe a modification of another one?
It should be baking “soda” and cream of tartar with no baking powder. Enjoy!
Kevin, I’m looking for a cookie that is crisp on the outside and chewy tender on the inside. Your’s look like they might fit the bill. Do they?
I’ve tried other but they miss the mark.
