A cookie that has a perfectly chewy texture and the perfect amount of cream of tartar for a little kick. I would dare say this is the best snickerdoodle recipe I've ever tried. They are my husband's FAVORITE cookie.


1 C butter (you can do 1/2 shortening, 1/2 butter)
1 1/2 c sugar
2 large eggs
2 3/4 c flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar + 3 tsp cinnamon (Do not add to dough)


Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter and sugar until smooth and fluffly. Add eggs, mix well. Mix the dry ingredients first and then add to the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar.

This dough works better if you chill it for about 30 minutes. I use a cookie scoop for these which holds about 2 tablespoons of dough. Roll the dough into a ball and then roll the ball of dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture until evenly coated. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes at 350. Makes 24 cookies.
