Description

I call this easy because it doesn’t use cream of tartar, which some people don’t keep on hand. These are basic ingredients and so yummy!

Ingredients

  • 2-¾ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 sticks Unsalted Butter
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Put softened butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar in a bowl and mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in eggs. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture.

2. Stir together cinnamon and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 20 (1 3/4-inch) balls; roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Space 3 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

3. Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until edges are golden, 12 to 15 minutes.

Makes about 2 dozen.

These are awesome; with or without the cinnamon/sugar! My kids gobbled them up.

I made these this week, and they turned out great! I baked them for 12 minutes as well, otherwise they weren’t nice and soft.
The whole family loved them, even my extreemly picky 6 year old!

These turned out really delicious! I noticed with my oven, though, that if I let the edges brown then I overcooked the cookies. 12 minutes was good. 15 was when they started to get brown and they ended up a bit crunchier than I like them. Thanks for the recipe!

I loved the recipe but if u replace the butter with 3/4 smart butter 1/4 a mixeture of butter milk and olive oil makes cookies soft and bouncy

A yummy alternative to the cream of tartar recipe, but I like the other version better.

These were great and so easy! Snickerdoodles aren’t really my thing, but I took them to a potluck and they disappeared :)
