Snicker Doodle Cookies

Several years ago, I asked my grandmother for her snicker doodle cookie recipe and it has been a favorite in our home ever since.  Not only are these cookies really tasty but they are super-easy to make.  I often try to make double-batch so that I can have part of the dough stashed away in the freezer for those in-a-pinch-need-cookies-NOW moments. 

Yield: ~5 dozen cookies (depending on the size of dough balls you make)

  • 1 c butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • small bowl of cinnamon-sugar mixture for rolling the balls of dough in


  1. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar; add in the eggs and continue mixing.
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt and add to the creamed mixture.
  3. Roll the dough into small balls (I typically make mine around the size of a gumball) and then roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  4. Chill dough for at least 2 hours to keep the cookies from spreading when baking.
  5. Pre-heat oven to 350F; bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes.  Remove the baking sheet from the oven and leave the cookies on the baking sheet for ~2 minutes before transferring the cookies to a cooling rack.  Enjoy!
