The simple goodness of a great cookie infused with delicate cinnamon flavor for a perfect cookie any time of year! Snickerdoodles are often thought of as a holiday cookie, but the cinnamon sugar flavor tastes great all year old, so why limit ourselves?
Last Christmas, I made snickerdoodles on a whim for a cookie collection for airmen that couldn’t go home to their families for the holiday. I rarely made them before, since both Logan and I are addicted to chocolate and usually opt for cookies with that particular indulgence. But when we tasted them, Logan begged me to not give them all away!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a sucker for chocolate. But somehow the cinnamon sugar coating makes these light, fluffy goodies just as scrumptious as any chocolate delicacy!
Cream butter and sugar. Everything delicious starts here.
Combine the cookie ingredients and then chill for an hour or two.
Roll into 1-inch balls, then coat with cinnamon sugar.
The result? Lovely, light, fluffy cookies that practically guarantee you can’t eat just one.
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1 ¾ cups sugar
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs room temperature
- 4 tsp cinnamon
- Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, beat the butter & 1 ½ cups sugar for several minutes until fluffy.
- Add eggs, one at a time.
- Add half the dry ingredients to butter mixture, mix until just combined, then repeat with the other half.
- Let the dough chill in the fridge for an hour or so.
- When the dough is cold, preheat the oven to 350°F. Mix together the cinnamon and remaining sugar in a shallow bowl.
- Roll the dough into small balls, about 1 inch. Roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat fully, then put on a greased baking sheet. Make sure you position them pretty far apart, these expand a lot.
- Bake 12-13 minutes, and pull when the edges are golden brown. Let rest on the cookie sheet for a minute, then put on a cooling rack for a few minutes.
