Growing up I loved making snickerdoodles. They were the first cookie that I learned to make on my own. They are super easy and can’t be messed up ( if you follow the recipe). They will turn out every time. As a kid my favorite part was rolling them in the sugar and cinnamon before putting them on the pan. I let my 2 year old Chloe help me with this part, and she enjoyed it as well. She is always saying “Me help mom.’ Although at times it would be so much faster to do things on my own. I know that it is important to let your kids help you with chores, and cooking. How else are they going to learn, right? Well I hope you enjoy these yummy snickerdoodles on this lovely summer Sunday afternoon. Make Sunday family memories with these snickerdoodles. Enjoy!

1/2 c of salted butter, softened

1/2 c  granulated sugar

1/3 c of brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp of vanilla

1 1/2 c of flour

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/4 tsp of cream of tarter

1/4 c of granulated sugar

2 tsp of cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together sugars, vanilla, egg and butter.


Add dry ingredients: flour, soda and cream of tarter. Mix well. In a small bowl mix together 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon. Set aside. Once the cookie dough is mixed well chill it for at least an hour or more. Do not leave this step out of the recipe. The cookies will spread all over your cookie sheet if you don’t chill the dough. Once the cookie dough has chilled its time to get baking. Spray your cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Make each cookie about 2 inches. Then roll it in the cinnamon and sugar mix.


Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool before serving.
