Need an easy recipe for a dessert RIGHT NOW? Here it is! You probably already have all of these ingredients and the dough doesn’t need any chilling time! Yay!
These cookies are the perfect treat with your afternoon coffee or tea OR as an addition to your holiday cookie plate 😉
So… let’s get started making the BEST and EASIEST Snickerdoodle!
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons sugar (for rolling)
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon (for rolling)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and beat until combined. Slowly beat in flour mixture until just combined.
In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Enjoy!
Note: Makes about 4 dozen cookies so feel free to halve this recipe. Store covered at room temp.
