I know, I know. I’ve been throwing around “Best” like it’s discounted or something, but I promise it is just because I am sharing all the recipes that I have been tweaking over the past several years!

I disappeared for a solid 2 years and I’m trying to make up for my absence with gifts like any good friend would.😂 It only seems fair.

These Snickerdoodles are actually like a gift. They are soft and chewy with that characteristic ‘doodle tang. The cinnamon sugar is just a touch crunchy and adds a little extra sweetness. They also come together in under 30 minutes. You don’t even have to chill them! You should; it would be better if you did; but you don’t have to.

What makes a ‘doodle a ‘doodle? Two things my friends. Cream of tartar in the dough and a beautiful coating of cinnamon sugar on the outside. Please do not ask me if you can omit the cream of tartar. You can, but then you are making a sugar cookie. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It’s just not a snickerdoodle. [The best sugar cookie recipe is coming soooooon btw 🥳]

My original snickerdoodle recipe is delightful and are what these are based on. I filmed a video and was just going to link it to the old recipe, but then realized it was too different and it needed its own special spotlight. I bring you The Best Snickerdoodle Cookie!
