Snickerdoodle cookies are light and fluffy with the perfect touch of cinnamon. You can make a batch in less than 30 minutes.
I love sharing some of my favorite cookies. Snickerdoodle Cookies have a lot to shine about. First of all, they’re a classic cookie. They’ve have been around for a while and are popular. This recipe they are chewy, comforting, and slightly sweet with that wonderful essence of cinnamon.
Cinnamon adds flavor but it also adds an aroma that is not like anything else.
I brought these over to a family friend’s house because this recipe makes quite a few, about 35 cookies, and they were gone by the end of the night. It is one of my most favorite recipes to make, because it is an easy Snickerdoodle recipe that is full of flavor. I know it will quickly become one of your favorites too.
Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe
- 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1¼ cups granulated sugar
- ¼ cup dark brown sugar (light brown sugar will work, too
- )2 large eggs, room temperature
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
CINNAMON SUGAR INGREDIENTS
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2½ teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking pan with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
In a bowl, mix together dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; set aside. In a mixer, cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Next add vanilla extract and eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Scrape down sides of the bowl as necessary.
With mixer on low-speed, gradually add the bowl of dry ingredients and mix until incorporated, do not over-mix.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in freezer for 15 minutes to chill. You can also place in the refrigerator if you plan on making the cookies later. You do not have to chill the dough, but it is much easier to roll into a ball if it is chilled a little.
To make the cinnamon sugar, mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Measure about 1½ tablespoons of dough, roll into a ball and then roll in cinnamon sugar and place on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Every oven is different so it may take up to 20 minutes for your cookies to fully bake through. I suggest starting at 8 minutes and then watch them from there.
However, you do not want to over bake as snickerdoodle cookies are known for their soft and chewy texture. Cookies will look puffy when they are done, remove from oven and let cool slightly on baking sheet then move to cookie sheet to cool completely. Cookies will flatten a little as they cool.
