Snickerdoodles are sugar cookies rolled in a cinnamon-sugar mixture. These are chewy the same day you make them and become crunchy the next day, sadly.


For the topping:

  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the 1 cup sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and vinegar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
  3. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.
  4. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour.
  5. Cover and chill dough for 1 to 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  6. Preheat oven to 375°F (190c)
  7. Combine the 2 T. sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl.
  8. Shape dough into 1-inch (2.5cm) balls. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar to coat. Place balls 2 inch (5cm) apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes or until edges are golden. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.


  • If you are using a mixer with more than one kind of beater, use the paddle attachment.
