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


Mix the flour, cream of tartar and baking soda together in a bowl.


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


Slowly add the flour mixture a little at the time, continuing to blend in until combined.


Chill the dough


Form the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator to chill for half an hour.


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.


Shape the cookies


In a small bowl, combine the rest of the sugar and cinnamon. Take one tablespoonful of the mixture at a time and roll it into a ball using your hands. Then dip each ball into the cinnamon sugar, until coated, and place on the baking tray. Leave about 2 inches between each ball.


Bake cookies


Put the cookies in the oven to bake for 8-10 minutes, until they turn a golden brown. Turn the baking trays around halfway through to ensure an even bake.


Serving Homemade Snickerdoodle Cookies


Take the cookies out of the oven and leave to cool for a couple of minutes, before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
