I think it has been established that I love baking with cinnamon and sugar… and well snickerdoodles are the perfect combination of both these ingredients! This past weekend my mom and I had a few Christmas parties to attend so we thought it’d be nice and maybe even beneficial to my blog 😉 to bring a few sweet treats!
These snickerdoodle cookies came out so perfectly! They are delicious on the outside and nice and soft and chewy on the inside. Please enjoy with your family, or by yourself because you may not want to share!
1/2 Cup Butter, Softened
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 1/2 Cup Flour
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
In a medium bowl start by beating the butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add the 1 Cup sugar, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat until combined, scrape the edge of the bowl when necessary. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined. Then add the flour slowly with the mixer, if you are unable to mix all of the flour in with the electric mixer you can use a spoon, or the fun version, your hands!
Let the dough chill while covered for an hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees (F). In a small bowl combine the 2 Tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-11 minutes until golden. Let cool. Should make about 30 cookies.
