Snickerdoodle Cookies

If you are looking for a classic cookie recipe that'll make you miss your granny, you should take a look at this snickerdoodle recipe! Snickerdoodles are a cookie that has been around for a long time and makes the perfect sweet treat. Rolled in cinnamon sugar, this cookie is so scrumptious!

  • Total Time: 1 hour 8 minutes
  • Yield: 8 people 1x


  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened to room temperature
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 ¾ cup flour, plain
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a stand mixer, blend butter and sugar until creamy, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Then add eggs and vanilla and mix another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Mix add flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar until just combined. don't over mix at this point.
  5. Optional: allow dough to cool in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before rolling it into balls.
  6. In a shallow bowl, combine ¼ cup of sugar and 1 ½ Tbsp. of cinnamon. Stir until well combined.
  7. Roll dough into smooth, round balls, about 2-inches in diameter.
  8. Roll the balls into the cinnamon sugar mixture until well coated.
  9. Place the dough balls on parchment lined baking sheets and press down in the middle for a flatter cookie.
  10. Bake at 350º for 8-10 minutes, until edges start to brown. I really like to take them out at the 8-minute mark.
  11. Let the cookies cool before placing them in an air tight container.


  • Mixing the butter and sugar together for 4-5 minutes allows the dough to get fluffy with lots of air for a softer, chewier cookie.
