A Sweet Iconic Snickerdoodle Recipe

A Sweet Iconic Snickerdoodle Recipe |

Some cookies are so indelibly imprinted in our memory, and so incredibly delicious, they earn the title, “iconic.” The Snickerdoodle is one of those cookies. Sweet and chewy, pillowy fluffy and addictively wonderful with their cinnamon-sugar coating.



1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg, plus 1 yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cinnamon Sugar Coating

1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Cream together the granulated sugar and the butter until light and fluffy. And the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix until completely combined.

Mix together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon, and salt; add to the wet ingredients and stir well.

Using a cookie scoop or two spoons, scoop and shape the dough into 1 to 2 inch balls; roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place the dough 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Be careful not to overbake. Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool completely… if you can wait that long. Smile — they’re that good!
