chewy snickerdoodles

A while ago I went shopping with a friend and ended up buying baking weights and a home made soft, chewy snickerdoodle in a household goods shop. The cookie was so delicious I wanted to try and make them myself. I searched online and found this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

chewy snickerdoodles
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 cup (220g) butter (room temperature)
  • 1⅓ cup (265g) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg (L)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (375g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Make the topping: toss ¼ cup granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Preheat oven to 375° F / 190° C.
  4. In a large bowl using a mixer cream the butter for about 1 minute on medium speed.
  5. Then add the sugar on medium speed until fluffy and light and mix in egg and vanilla.
  6. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  7. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 3 different parts.
  8. The dough is quite thick and you may have to stir the rest by hand.
  9. Take 1.5 - 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball, then roll the dough balls into the reserved cinnamon-sugar topping.
  10. Bake the cookies for 11-12 minutes.
  11. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.



They turned out nicely chewy but unfortunately not quite as good as the one I bought at the little shop.
