Day 124: Snickerdoodles

These are soft and chewy, yet crispy snickerdoodles! They're so easy to make and you don't even have to cool the dough.

The nice thing about this dough is that you don't have to chill it.

Yes - you can chill it...but honestly it just saves time this way.

If you like cinnamon you can add 1 teaspoon more, but you don't want to overpower it too much. Otherwise, it will taste strange.

These cookies will look raw in the middle but they will cool as they bake. If it's a little crispy around the edges, go ahead and take it out.

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda*

  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. In a stand mixer, beat together butter and sugar. Add 2 eggs and beat until combine. In another bowl combine, flour, salt, and cream of tarter. Slowly pour this mixture into the butter/sugar bowl. Continue mixing until fully combined.
