The Fluffiest Snickerdoodle Cookies


Thank you everyone who has sent me recipe requests! I will try as often as possible to cook/bake your requests. Here is my first one…Snickerdoodle cookies, a  classic favorite. These are my all time favorite cookies and I finally perfected my recipe to make them extra “fluffy”, just as they should be! For those who have a recipe you would like to learn how to cook/bake please email me at:

Yield: 2 dozen

1 cup butter; softened or at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs; room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

For the cinnamon-sugar coating
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Once creamed, add flour (one cup at a time), cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Let sit in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
2. In the meantime, in a small bowl mix cinnamon and sugar. With a mini ice-cream scooper scoop dough balls and place in cinnamon sugar bowl. Roll balls in mixture until coated well. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart (because they will get a lot bigger!) and bake for 8-9 minutes. Transfer onto cooling rack until cooled completely. The cookie will look undercooked but it will cook a little more as it cools.

    Hi. The recipie instructions say “cream butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.” However, the ingredients do not list butter…… So is butter not actually an ingredient or is that a misprint? Thanks! 🙂

      Hi Misty!!!
      So sorry about the misprint but YES there is definitely butter in the recipe, I updated the recipe and there is 1 cup of butter and it would be best of it was softened or at room temperature. Let me know how your cookies turn out! 🙂

    I made these to the exact ingredient. They did not get much bigger than what they were when I scooped them on to the cookie sheet. They turned out more like a ball. However, still yummy !!
