Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe!

*post recycled from last year- but great easy cookies for the holidays*
My favorite cookies ever are Snickerdoodles! Believe it or not up until a few years ago I never bothered trying them. I always figured plain looking cookies were just that! Plain!
Nope, these cookies are a hit with everyone I know!
*If you’re trying to lose weight these are NOT the cookies for you though!
2 1/2 C. Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 C. Butter or Margarine, softened
(equal to 2 sticks)
1 1/4 C. Sugar
2 Eggs
3 Tbs. Sugar mixed with 1 tsp CinnamonPreheat oven to 400 degrees

In large bowl combine butter & sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. I used a handheld for the pics but they come out fluffier in my kitchenaid stand mixer.
Add Eggs, beat. Mix well.
Stir in baking powder, salt, and flour. Mix until dough stiffens.
Chill dough 30 minutes (I’ve skipped this step before).
Roll into walnut sized balls. Roll it around in the cinnamon sugar.
Place on cookie sheet. Repeat. Bake 8-10 mins.
Let cool on baking sheet!
Above it as directed. If you sprinkle a little extra cinnamon-sugar over the balls before you bake them you’ll get a little added color that I like.
Like I said far from nutritional. But BIG on taste!
Let me know if you make these! I love that the ingredients are always stuff I have on hand and don’t have to run out beforehand for extra’s.

  7. Thanks for the delicious recipe. I made them tonight and they are perfect! We are in a blizzard right now, so I wanted to make something that I had all the ingredients here. This was great. It cured my hubby’s sweet tooth and the kids devoured them. Thanks!!

    Can I use self rising flour, instead of using baking powder? Or baking soda?
