Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie so I have tried 20+ recipes. This one is great HOWEVER turn the oven down a little - a tad below 375 degrees and be sure to use small scoops. Too big and they won't cook in the center. Always use room temp butter and eggs use the freshest ingredients possible and of the best quality you can afford.
This is the same recipe my family has used for as long as I can remember. It uses butter instead of shortening, which I definitely prefer. I do not like to use shortening in anything. Also, it uses less butter/fat than other recipes, but the cookies still taste great. This is a classic snickerdoodle recipe and I always get rave reviews when I make them. For those who said the cookies didn’t bake well, I think the problem may have been your oven or the ingredients and not the recipe, because these always turn out perfectly for me. They are simple and fast to make and I almost always have the necessary ingredients in my kitchen.
Just made these - Great recipe and the taste is wonderful:) Only thing I found was that the dough was sticky to roll in my hands but I found a very simple and quick solution of wetting my hands with water before rolling the balls. Worked wonderfully no more sticky and also rolling in the cinnamon/sugar mixture sticked to the balls better. Great recipe!
These cookies were really disappointing. Not at ALL the usual snickerdoodle cookie we all grew up with. They dont spread and stay in mounds. The flavor isn't anything wonderful, as it is a cookie that seems dry and light on flavor. My suggestion, find a new recipe when looking for snickerdoodle, pass this one up.
I didn't have cream of tartar and these still came out fabulous. I was really craving cookies and needed a simple ingredient list since I don't have much. My favorite part is how the edges are crispy while the center stays chewy for days. I can't wait to make these for my family for the holidays.
These are better than any Snickerdoodles I've ever tried and I've made many different recipes. I don't like the flat crispy ones that most recipes make. These are soft and thick. Very yummy! I made these several times this fall/winter and they were always eaten up right away. Oh and I don't normally like to eat cookie dough - but this one is very good - hard to stay out of! Thanks for the great recipe!
These taste just like my Grandma's snickerdoodles! I made them for a party and they were gobbled up. Tip: for special Christmas snickerdoodles die the sugar red and/or green and the cookies have the crackled look but festive!
