Homemade Snickerdoodle Cookies
These soft and chewy Homemade Snickerdoodle Cookies are absolutely heavenly! For those who aren’t familiar, snickerdoodle cookies are usually made with butter, a splash of vanilla and tangy cream of tartar, before being rolled in cinnamon and sugar.
I’ve been eating these all my life so of course I had to find the perfect recipe for me to cook them myself at home! My kids really love them and it’s a fun recipe for us to make together – I just have to make sure some of the dough makes it into the oven at the end of it!
So, how to cook grandma’s snickerdoodle cookies?
Steps to make Homemade Snickerdoodle Cookies
Combine the dry ingredients
Beat the eggs and butter
Using a wooden spoon or handheld mixer, cream the butter in a large bowl until it becomes pale. Use a spatula to scrape the butter from the sides of the bowl. Add the salt and 3/4 of a cup of sugar and cream together with the butter until the mixture is fluffy. Scrape the sides again before adding the eggs and beating until combined.
Add the dry ingredients
Chill the dough
Preheat the oven and prepare trays
While the dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 375°F. Move the oven racks to the top and bottom of the oven. Lay parchment paper on two baking sheets.
