Revealed: How To Bake The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies
Really. They're the best snickerdoodles around. Borrowing this recipe from Lil' Luna + adding a little fun flavor to it from moi. This weekend I made around 60 batches in less than 1 hour. They're so easy to make. Actually, more like so fun to make. I was first introduced to snickerdoodles during graduate school (I know, shocker. I literally missed out on these cookies my whole childhood). But when one of my close friends wanted to make them, I was all for it. And of course, when I tried it, I was over the moon. Ever since that initial introduction, snickerdoodles became my go to cookie. I've never been much of a cookie person, but these particular snickerdoodles totally change the game.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 1 pack of Reese's peanut butter chips* (this is my idea of fun flavor)
- 1 cup of butter (softened)
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 2 tsp cream of tarter
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
For the cookie coating:
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon (I used a lot more because I love cinnamon)
1). Pre heat oven at 350 degrees F.
2). Mix together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
3). Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs and blend well.Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well. Add reese's peanut butter chips to the batter. Mix well again.
4). Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
5). Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. (Makes about 4 dozen cookies)
