Spectacular Snickerdoodles

Although I’ve bragged about them and even shared a picture of my perfect Snickerdoodles, I never actually posted a recipe.  But I when I sniffed out If I Could Escape’s Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange, I thought now was the perfect time to post my perfect and very impressive Snickerdoodle cookie recipe.  See, my Snickerdoodles are so impressive because I can’t bake and yet somehow, I make the best damn Snickerdoodles on the planet.  Honest!  I even have a certificate to prove it.

(Modified recipe from Joy of Cooking)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease or line 2 cookie sheets.


Whisk until well blended:

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt


Beat in an electric mixer:

1 stick unsalted COLD butter cut into small cubes

1 ½ cups sugar


Add and beat until well combined:

2 large eggs

Gradually add in the flour mixture.


Mix on a separate dish:

¼ cup sugar

4 tsp ground cinnamon


Shape the dough into 1 ¼ inch balls, roll in the cinnamon sugar and arrange about 2 ¾ inches apart on the cookie sheets.  Bake, one sheet at a time, until the cookies are light golden brown at the edges, about 12-14 minutes.  Let stand briefly; then remove to cooling rack.


Yields approximately 36 three inch cookies.

    I’m obsessed with your Snickerdoodles recipe. It’s delicious. However, I find that Snickerdoodles take SO LONG to make (dough, letting it sit, everything). I found a cool recipe that I think you’d like that cuts some corners when you don’t have time to make the dough from scratch.
