I recently tried a new recipe for Snickerdoodles. I’ve been baking snickerdoodle cookies for years and years with the same old recipe, and love them!

Recently I saw a “new” recipe on a website I love that looked interesting, so I gave it a try. The blogger I got this snickerdoodles recipe from is Chris Scheuer, at The Cafe Sucré Farine. She found this recipe in a cookbook from a famous bakery in London, England.

Do you know the story behind the humble snickerdoodle cookie? It’s pretty interesting. Find out here. It’s become such a well loved American classic cookie!

For the cookies:
  • 4 oz. butter , softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For coating the dough balls:
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs to the mixture. Mix well until combined.
  4. Add the rest of the cookie ingredients to this mixture a little at a time. Mix until well combined.
  5. In a separate small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together for the coating.
  6. Form cookies. Use approximately a 2 Tablespoon size scoop of cookie dough, and roll it between your (clean) hands to form a ball. Place the dough ball into the cinnamon-sugar mixture, and roll it in the mixture until all sides of the dough ball are coated.
  7. Place each coated dough ball onto parchment paper (or wax paper) lined baking sheets, about 2 inches apart from each other.
  8. Bake in 325 degree oven for about 12 minutes (or until the cookies are a light brown color). When done, let cookies cool on pan for a couple of minutes, then remove cookies and place them on a wire rack to cool. Cookies will crack a bit... don't worry... it's ALL GOOD.
