SNICKER DOODLE-DO COOKIES - Just a few ingredients result in such chewy goodness

Snicker Doodle-Do Cookies

The taste of these chewy cookies begins with the hint of cinnamon and a heavenly buttery flavor followed by that distinctive tang and cushion of sweetness.

Hands down, nearly everyone who has chomped into this cookie recipe has commented that these were their all-time favorite Snicker Doodles. Why? Because they are soft, chewy and tasty.

My husband and I are empty nesters so to keep our cookies from getting stale before we can get to them all, we freeze most of them in small freezer bags and keep just one bag out at a time to nibble on. We can attest that they are still yummy after having been frozen for a couple weeks, though they usually are long gone before then.

Makes: About 2 dozen

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Bake Time: 12 -14 minutes per batch

Suggested Tools:

· Large mixing bowl

· Cookie sheet

· Parchment paper

· Spatula

· Measuring Cups

· Measuring Spoons

· Large spoon

· Oven pads


· 3 cups flour

· 1 ½ cups sugar

· 2 cubes butter, softened

· 2 large eggs

· 2 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar

· 1 teaspoon baking soda

· ¼ teaspoon salt

Sugar Coating:

· 2 tablespoon sugar

· 2 teaspoons cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper or use baking spray or prepare pan in your favorite way to keep cookies from sticking to the pan.

3. Soften the two cubes of butter so that your spoon can easily press into the butter without any resistance. I usually use the microwave to do this as many microwaves have a soften setting just for butter.

Note: I find that if I slice the butter cubes up before softening (see photo above), that the cube softens more evenly and at a faster rate.

4. Add the sugar and eggs and mix together until well mixed by hand.

5. Next add the cream of tartar, baking soda and salt and mix well. The mixture should have somewhat of a fluffiness texture to it.

6. Add flour to mixture and combine well. The dough becomes rather firm yet still produces a very light cookie.

7. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon together in small bowl. The wider the bowl the better which will make it easier to roll the cookie dough in.

8. Take the desired amount of cookie dough and roll it gently in your hands and roll the dough in both palms until a ball of sorts is formed (doesn't have to be an exact ball shape).

9. Roll the ball of dough in the cinnamon and sugar mixture until the ball is covered and place on prepared cookie sheet.

10. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes.
