Snickerdoodle Recipe and Cookie Round-up

Have you started your holiday baking? I know, it just turned December, but remember cookies freeze well and you get a head start on your cookies! My daughter loves Snickerdoodles. We don't make them a lot, if ever. So her choice for the first cookies of the season is Snickerdoodles. 

We used the recipe from .  The reason I chose this recipe is that it was simple, it used only butter is and no shortening. 



  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 3⁄4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Mix butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar and eggs thoroughly in a large bowl.

  • Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.

  • Blend dry ingredients into butter mixture.


  • Chill dough, and chill an ungreased cookie sheet for about 10-15 minutes in the fridge.

  • Meanwhile, mix 3 tablespoons sugar, and 3 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.

  • Scoop 1 inch globs of dough into the sugar/ cinnamon mixture.

  • Coat by gently rolling balls of dough in the sugar mixture.

ready to cook

  • Place on chilled ungreased cookie sheet, and bake 10 minutes.

  • Remove from pan immediately.



  • Roll small dough balls, the smaller the better, they flatten out
  • This recipe makes a cookie that isn't very sweet, if you want it sweeter, add more sugar to the coating mixture
  • The recipe makes about 24 to 36 small cookies, if you need more, double the recipe.
