A Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe that is loaded full of cinnamon and sweet, sugary goodness. A cinnamon-speckled vanilla cookie dough is rolled into a cinnamon-sugar mix and baked until perfectly golden brown and chewy. A classic Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe!



For the cookies:

  • 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For the coating:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


For the cookies:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Reduce the speed to low and mix in the egg, making sure the bottom of the bowl is mixed in.
  2. Add in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix just until a cookie dough forms.

For the coating:

  1. Combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  2. Use a medium-sized cookie scoop to scoop the dough into balls, roll into the cinnamon-sugar to coat completely and place on a baking sheet a few inches apart.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set and just starting to turn slightly golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!


  • Cream of tartar is an important ingredient in Snickerdoodle cookies to give them their classic tang and also helps as a leavening agent.
