Super soft and full of cinnamon – this Snickerdoodle recipe is sure to be a hit! They’re one of our all-time favorite cookie recipes and always get so many compliments!
I LOVE Snickerdoodles! My family searched for the best Snickerdoodle Recipe for a long time, and we finally found THE ONE. We’ve been using it for as long as I can remember now. I wish my mom could remember where she found it, but she thinks it’s from an old family friend.
What’s great about this recipe is that it’s easy and cookies always turn out SOFT, which for me is pretty much a requirement for a good cookie. 🙂 We know there are tons who loves this cinnamon cookie, but if you fall under that category, then I suggest giving this cookie recipe a try. We love changing it up like we did with these White Chocolate Snickerdoodles (adding white chocolate chips)and these White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles (more white chocolate chips plus pumpkin spice).
Cinnamon and sugar goodness!!
How to make Snickerdoodles:
We love that these cookies are so simple that even the kids can help out!!
- You begin by mixing together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set this aside and cream together the butter and sugar followed by adding the eggs until it is well blended.
- From there you add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix well and then shape dough into 1 inch balls.
- Mix these balls into your cinnamon and sugar mixture and place on an un-greased pan.
These balls get dipped in cinnamon and sugar and are baked to perfection, resulting in an AMAZING cookie!!
