These cookies are straight up amazing! The first time I ever had a Snickerdoodle was about 4 years ago, and I fell in love instantly! I only started using this recipe over the past couple of months, but it has quickly become my go to for when I’m craving a little bit (or a lot) of sugary goodness.
They are super quick and easy to mix up, using very basic ingredients. The only thing you might not have (I know I didn’t before I started using this recipe) is Cream of Tartar.
Soft and melt in your mouth delicious on the inside with a lightly crispy outside because of the sugar and cinnamon coating. Self control is very hard for me as is when it comes to cookies, and these guys make it even harder to stop! This is a fairly small recipe, making approximately 2 dozen small cookies, or 18 medium sized ones, so at least I don’t have cookies sitting in the freezer calling to me for weeks! Usually they’re gone within a few days :O
So, I decided not to post the full recipe on my blog and instead I’m posting a link to the website that I found the recipe on at the bottom of this post. This link should take you straight to her post with the recipe near the bottom.
The only change I made from that recipe, is I didn’t chill the dough… I know it sounds like an important step, but who has the patience for that!! I know I don’t. Instead I use butter that is still slightly chilled, I took mine out about 15 minutes before I started mixing up this batch. It means your mixer has a bit of a task trying to blend the sugars into the butter, but it worked well and I didn’t have to wait! Oh, and one more thing, I would recommend not substituting margarine for the butter. I’ll admit I am a bit of a butter snob, but in these cookies, it really makes a difference! The sweet buttery flavour just wouldn’t be there without butter!!
Let me know if you try it! I’d love to know if there are more Snickerdoodle fans out there! Maybe you have another great recipe for these lovely cookies that you’d like to share with me?? 🙂
