Wow! I hadn’t made Snickerdoodles in ages. Let’s just say that the last time I made Snickerdoodles was around the time I didn’t photograph food or even blogged about it.




2 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour

1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon (plus, 1 teaspoon for later)

1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1 cup Butter

1 1/4 cup Sugar (plus, 1/4 cup for later)

2 Eggs

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a larger bowl cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth.

Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture until soft dough forms.

Using a small bowl or plate mix in the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the sugar mixture.
