Perfectly Perfect Snickerdoodles

No, no. I mean it. These guys are soft in the middle, chewy-crunchy on the edges and cinnamony all over the place. That, my friends–spells perfectly perfect. You may just find yourself stuffing a couple of these in your purse, and skipping down the road singing a few bars of, “Oh, happy day…”

And rightly so.

Perfectly Perfect Snickerdoodles

Ingredients:

3 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. cream of tartar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2tsp. vanilla

—————————-

1/4 cup sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt, and set aside. Cream butter and brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar on medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture and beat on low just until mixed.

Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon in a bowl. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and then in the cinnamon sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool slightly before moving to cooling rack.

Go get ’em.

Return with honor.

  1. Oh man I wish I would have known you had this recipe about a dozen cravings ago. I’ve never found one I really like but I believe this will take care of that.

  2. These look so yummy! I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve made snickerdoodles! Mine use to keep like a hump in them, they didn’t spread out like these look, any ideas why?? They still tasted great but these LOOK better! 🙂

  3. I’ve had other recipes do that too–but not this one. It’s good. Maybe leave them on the pan for a few minutes so they can finish cooking. That might help. :]
