Buttery Crisp Snickerdoodles

I love Snickerdoodles! This is a great recipe, the edges are perfectly crisp and the inside is nice and soft. Enjoy!

1 Cup softened real butter
1 ½ Cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon real vanilla
2 ¾ Cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar

¼ Cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar until creamy. Slowly beat in the eggs and vanilla.
2. Slowly add the flour, salt and cream of tartar until combined. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
3. Roll about 1-2 Tablespoons of dough into a ball and into cinnamon and sugar mixture then place on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.

    I love snickerdoodles, too! I was going to make some recently, and noticed a lot of recipes had shortening, and that doesn’t appeal to me. (Most of the time)
    I must try your version with butter.

    I was looking at your brownies yesterday and YUM! They look amazing! I rarely make a batch of homemade brownies, but I think I need to now!

    I want to make snickerdoodle cookies but I don’t have cream of tartar and I used all my baking soda. Is there any substitute I can use?

    I knew that if I was looking for a perfect snickerdoodle recipe that I should come straight to your site. Thank you! These are wonderful! (Noticed baking soda was not incorporated into the directions below the ingredient list). Great cookie to bring to a warm weather bbq !
