Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

This Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe is the best! Growing up, I thought I hated Snickerdoodle Cookies. The only kind I had ever had were hard as a rock and boring. (sorry, mom)

Until I tried this recipe on a whim. I found it online somewhere many years ago (I could tell you where if my handwritten recipe wasn’t smeared) and it’s the only one I use.

Soft and Cinnamon-y, you can easily get kids involved in this one! They love to take the scoops of dough and roll them around in the cinnamon sugar mixture. It saves you a step and everyone gets to be involved.  Win/win!

Snickerdoodles Cookie Recipe

  • 1/2 cup Margarine
  • 1/2 cup Shortening
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (optional)
  • 2 3/4 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Cream of Tarter
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 4 Tbsp Cinnamon

How To Make Snickerdoodles Cookies

325* Oven.

Cream Margarine, Shortening and Sugar in bowl of electric mixer.

Add Eggs and mix well. (I usually add a teaspoon of Vanilla Extract as well).

Combine Flour, Baking Soda, Salt, and Cream of Tartar in separate bowl then add to creamed mixture. Or, do like I do and throw them all on top, then swish around a bit with the spoon, before mixing it all together.

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Grab that 3 Tablespoon cookie dough scoop and drop them into the Cinnamon/Sugar mix. Flatten slightly with a fork.

On greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheet, bake cookies for 10-15 minutes if you make them larger like I do. Small cookie can get done in less than 10 minutes but they just don’t seem as soft.

Makes 30 good-sized cookies.
