One of my favorite desserts to make is snickerdoodle cookies. It’s one of those recipes where I usually have all the ingredients on hand and is something I know everyone will love. My son, who claims to not like anything with cinnamon (even cinnamon rolls -yes I know), even loves these cookies.This super soft snickerdoodle cookie recipe will win you instant friends!

Now don’t get me wrong, a good classic chocolate chip cookie still has my heart, but there’s just something about a snickerdoodle that is so perfect. As I was looking through my archives, I couldn’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe before now. I’ve shared my favorite pumpkin snickerdoodles (put them on your baking list this fall!) and these delicious pumpkin snickerdoodles, but not the good ol’ classic recipe.

What makes these so dreamy? The extra butter and brown sugar adds to the amazing flavor but the pillow top from the cream of tarter takes them over the top. I bake mine for 10 minutes, but I know every oven varies, so make sure to start watching them around 8 or 9 minutes. You don’t want to over cook these cookies.

Yield: 2 dozen

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 9-11 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tarter

For rolling cookies:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions:

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, 1 cup sugar and the brown sugar with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Add in the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cream of tarter. Stir just until smooth. Cover the dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

In a small bowl stir together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll the dough into 1 1/2 inch size balls and then roll into the cinnamon sugar. Place onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden brown. The centers will look slightly undercooked and that's okay. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and they will firm up. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container.
