Boy do I have THE Snickerdoodle recipe for you.....I discovered it in a Taste of Home Best Loved Cookies and Bars magazine that I purchased this past December....they are to die for!

1/2 C butter, softened (use REAL butter, salted)
1 C plus 2 Tbs Sugar, divided
1 Egg
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (pure)
1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and 1 Cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar; gradually add to the creamed mixture. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in cinnamon-sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 0-12 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly cracked on top. Remove to wire racks to cool. YIELD: 2 1/2 dozen

These are absolutely delicious! I use one of my "scoops" to get perfect 1-inch balls and bake them for exactly 11 minutes and they are perfecto! Please let me know what you think of them after you try them! I haven't made them in a while as I found myself eating half of whatever came out of the oven! I've also made them larger and baked for a little longer...just wonderful!

This is te recipe I use:

Snickerdoodles Recipe courtesy Gale Gand
Show: Sweet Dreams
Episode: Viewer's Choice

For the topping:
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
For the cookie dough:
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
To make the cookie dough, stir together the dry ingredients.
In a bowl with a paddle attachment, cream the butter. Add the sugar and continue to mix, then add the eggs, corn syrup, and vanilla, and mix thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients and mix until blended. Chill dough 1 hour if it's sticky or difficult to handle.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll balls of dough about the size of a walnut then roll them in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Place on an un-greased sheet pan 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until puffed up and the surface is slightly cracked. Let cool on the sheet pan a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.


They taste great and are easy to make. I even mix colored sugar with the sugar topping and they look prettier.

I've never seen a snickerdoodle recipe without cream of tartar. I thought that was a key to these cookies. I look forward to trying these recipes too!!

I was thinking the same thing. I finally found my mom's old recipe (trust me when I say OLD recipe) and it calls for cream of tartar and also calls for mashing the balls of dough with a fork before baking. I haven't made these since I was in high school and I have my 40th reunion this year. icon_lol.gif

This cookie is my oldest son's FAVORITE cookie. When ever I send him care packages from home that is the one cookie that I have to send. Love seeing different cookie recipes here. Will have to try them on him.

I googled snickerdoodle and then clicked on images. Lots of good photos, if you use the Gale Gland recipe above they will be flater than some of the photos.

I had never really paid attention to this magazine before....just happened to pick it up because of the cookies on the front. I can't believe how many wonderful recipes I've gotten out of it! I have little post-it page markers all over that thing!
