The Best Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

I’ve been searching for the perfect snickerdoodle recipe for years. You wouldn’t think that such a simple recipe would be so elusive but I guess I’m really picky. I’m currently visiting family in Arizona and it brought back so many memories of when I lived with my mom a couple of years ago. Every Sunday we would all be itching for cookies, because that’s what Sundays are all about, and snickerdoodles were always my go-to because we had all the ingredients on hand. Most snickerdoodle recipes have shortening in them which I hate. I really try to avoid using shortening at all costs. I started making this recipe years ago and recently made some to take to church and everyone loved them. When they asked if they could get the recipe on my site I realized it wasn’t on there.

This is supposedly Mrs. Field’s snickerdoodle cookie recipe. It has a slight crisp on the outside with a thick, cakey center. Which are just the qualifications I need for the best snickerdoodle cookie recipe.

The Best Snickerdoodle Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • For rolling:
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Directions
  2. 1.In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on high speed. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  3. 2.In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
  4. 3.Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
  5. 4.Preheat oven to 300 degrees while you let the dough rest for 30 to 60 minutes in the refrigerator.
  6. 5.In a small bowl, combine the sugar with the cinnamon for the topping.
  7. 6.Take around 2 tablespoons of the dough and roll it into a ball. Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press it onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining cookies.
  8. 7.Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes and no more. The cookies may seem undercooked, but will continue to develop after they are removed from the oven. When the cookies have cooled they should be soft and chewy in the middle.
