A Funny Name for an Elegantly Flavored Cookie: Snickerdoodles

The classic flavors of the Snickerdoodle have made this dessert a staple in many American homes today. I have a recipe for you that will make you leave those store bought cookies on the grocer's shelves. This recipe gives you soft, chewy, and fluffy cookies instead of those stale little hockey pucks found in a package. I make these cookies for my best friend for his birthday every year, as Snickerdoodles are his favorite cookie of all time. They also make a great party food, because your guests will keep going back for more!


Cara's Soft-n-Fluffy Snickerdoodles:

- 1 stick Butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Whole Milk
- 3 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

For Coating:
- about 5 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
- about 2 tablespoons Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and milk to combine. Sift flour and baking soda into butter mixture and stir until a dough is formed. Refridgerate dough for about 15 minutes. Once chilled, roll dough into balls about 1 tablespoon each. Roll the balls into the cinnamon-sugar mixture for an even coating and place onto prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until poofy and slightly golden.


I hope you enjoy another cookie recipe from my collection. Your little cookie monsters, both old and young, will love this one!

  1. I always enjoy snickerdoodles when offered, but I've never tried them at home. I'll be giving these a shot once I get out of my brownie obsession!
