Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle Cookies!

I found this recipe on Pinterest  from Texas Type A Mom after a quick Pinterest search!    My son was recently diagnosed with chocolate induced migraines, so I am trying to find alternatives to the classic chocolate chip cookie!

I made slight adjustments on the amount of sugar (in my lame attempt to justify “just one more”)  and the baking time based on my cranky oven!  And, I have a standing jar of cinnamon-sugar so I just dumped that in a bowl when it was time to roll (the dough)!

Easy Snickerdoodle Classic
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • dash of salt
  • Mix separately:
  • 4 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Mix together sugar, eggs, vanilla, and butter.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar.
  4. Once mixed, form dough into small balls ( mine were the size of a ping pong ball). Roll dough balls in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  5. Place on baking sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes depending on your oven.

The funniest part of this is when I saw the picture online I thought “oh wow, the cookies are in the shape of balls”  (when they are done).   So when I opened my oven and saw this I was like, “Oh, right.” Or should I say, “All right, all right, all right!”

These Snickerdoodle cookies were gone in minutes! And, I think my Australian Shepherd may have grabbed a few for a late night snack!

  1. I’m glad you liked these! Snickerdoodles are such a nice change to other cookies!

  2. Oh no! And I thought MY chocolate allergy was bad; I may feel like I’ve dipped my face into the fiery pits of Hell, but a migraine is far worse, poor guy. Snickerdoodles are awesome cookies though, definitely among my favorites!

  3. I have a snickerdoodle lover at my house. Glad to find this recipe. Saw it on A little claireification link party!
