I LOVE this recipe and last year when I made these I took pictures of me and Lexi making them – I’ll post them at the bottom – but first – here’s Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen with her tasty recipe! Janelle writes:
When last minute company is heading over, what do you make? Snickerdoodles! When you are fresh out of chocolate chips and your teenage son’s friends come over to “hang out”, what do you make? Snickerdoodles! When it’s cold and rainy outside and you are in the mood to bake something simple with the kidos…what do you make? Snickerdoodles!
Ladies, this is my ALL-TIME favorite Snickerdoodle recipe. There is NOTHING that smells better than these cookies baking…many a candlemaker has tried to put this smell in a jar and sell it, but alas…the real thing is just unmatchable. The mixture of butter, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar is good enough to make anyone’s mouth water! YUMMmmm….
In a large bowl, add butter, sugar and brown sugar
Mix well with mixer
Add an egg and vanilla
In a bowl mix together flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar.
*chill* for 30 mins in the refrigerator (do not skip this step, my Dears). Scoop into Tablespoon sized cookies.
Roll in cinnamon and sugar
Bake in a 300 oven for 14-16 mins (they will still be gooey) The key is to leave them on the baking sheet for a couple of mins so they will continue to bake. Then, place them on a cooling rack.
Wanna bite??? These are dense and buttery and ohh so good.
