Snickerdoodles Cookies

3cups all-purpose flour
1tsp. cream of tartar
1tsp. baking soda
¼tsp. salt
1cup butter, softened
1½cups sugar
2eggs
1tsp. vanilla extract
¼cup sugar
2tsp. ground cinnamon


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1½ cups sugar. Beat until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined.
  3. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. Using a sturdy rubber scraper or wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour mixture. Cover and chill the dough for about 1 hour, or until easy to handle.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F / 190 C.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together the ¼ cup sugar and the cinnamon. Shape the dough into 1½-inch balls. Roll the balls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place the balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
If baking powder is substituted for the cream of tarter, the cookies will be softer and more raised, and probably don't have the slight taste associated with C or T. If subbing, make a smaller cookie so it will crisp. up

Brilliant! Thanks Whiskadoodle!

I have all the ingredients already so Tuesday is looking good for this. (Tuesday was going to be my Clam Chowder day, but that has moved to Friday). I'll report back - with pics if they are successful!

I suspect Whiska incorporated Snickerdoodles into his screen name. Just a hunch.

I love the smell of Snickerdoodles baking!

The kind of cookies a realtor would tell you to bake during an open house!

Too late for me. Haven't made them yet, but I will in the next few days. Snickerdoodles bring back such good memories.

Thank you for posting your recipe, Whiskadoodle. I'm going to use it.
