Snickerdoodle Cookies



Is there anyone that hasn’t tried a Snickerdoodle cookie? If you haven’t, you don’t know what you’re missing! I love these cookies which have a hint of cinnamon. These are another one of my favorite Christmas cookies, however, I don’t think there’s a cookie that I don’t like!






Ingredients for the cookie

coating – cinnamon and sugar.



In a large mixing bowl, add butter,

1-1/2 cup of sugar and mix until combined.



Mix in one egg at a time.



Mix until light and fluffy.



In a small bowl combine flour,

baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.



Add the dry mixture, a little at a time,

to the butter mixture until mixed well.



In a small bowl, whisk together the 2 Tbl of sugar and the cinnamon.



Roll cookie dough into small 1” balls and

then roll into the cinnamon sugar mixture

coating the entire outside of the cookie ball.


Place the cookie balls 2” apart

onto an ungreased cookie sheet.


Bake in a preheated 400 degree

oven for 8-10 minutes.

Remove the cookies from the pan

and let them cool on a cooling rack.

  1. These look delicious! I make them at Christmas time, but instead of cinnamon-sugar, I roll them in colored sugars. Very festive..😊🙋
