The Best Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

Snickerdoodles are delicious cookies and they are so easy to make, if you use my recipe!

This recipe was passed down to me by my mother-in-law. It is so easy and everyone in the family just loves them. They’re great while they’re still warm just out of the oven or later when they’re cooled and crispy.

I love to make them around the holidays for guests to enjoy or give as a gift when visiting someone else’s home. They also make a nice treat to bring to the office or as a dessert for a potluck.

Here’s what you’ll need (ingredients):

– 1/2 cup butter or margarine
– 1/2 cup Crisco shortening
– 1 1/2 cup sugar
– 2 eggs
– 2 3/4 cup flour
– 2 tsp. cream of tartar
– 1 tsp. baking soda
– 1/4 tsp. salt
– 2 Tbsp. sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon

Here’s what you need to do (instructions):

Cream butter, shortening and sugar together. Add eggs and stir well. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter/shortening/sugar mixture. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.

Round the mixture into balls and roll in the sugar/cinnamon mixture to coat. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.

Enjoy! But, be prepared to make more soon because they are so good they don’t last!
