I’m going to share with you one of my absolute favorite recipes to make. I love making this for people, and honestly, they’re addictive, I warn you now! The cinnamon, the soft center, the buttery flavor… you can’t go wrong with snickerdoodles! Whip up a batch, and then have a few with your cuppa! I’ve been making these for ages though, and I will keep making them until people stop liking them! I certainly won’t stop liking them any time soon! Snickerdoodles for the win!

Snickerdoodles take a little bit of extra time (on account of the need to roll them), but I promise it’s worth it. Keep them in an airtight container, and they only get better with age. They’ll taste just as good on day 4 as they did on day 1, assuming of course that you have any left by then!

1 cup (230g) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 13 cups granulated sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups all purpose flour

2 12  teaspoons cinnamon

12 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

14 cup sugar

1. Preheat your oven to 375°F or about 190°C

2. In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly.

3. Mix together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients in three parts until combined thoroughly.

4. Swirl together the cinnamon and sugar for the topping.

5. Take 1-2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball. Lightly roll the ball around in the cinnamon sugar mixture, so that it is completely covered. Repeat until all the dough is used.

6. Lay out your dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are lightly golden brown. Don’t worry if they’re a little soft as they come out. They’ll harden as they cool!

7. Once out of the oven, press lightly down on each cookie with a spatula to flatten. Let them cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Hey presto, snickerdoodles! These are a great party favor, or to have with a nice cup of tea. They are very addictive, and I find myself unable to resist the call of the snickerdoodle!

Pin it for later!
