The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe: This Moist Cinnamon Cookie Recipe Has Oodles of Cinnamon

Sorry chocolate chip, but if I had to pick one cookie that was my all-time favorite it would be snickerdoodles, or as I like to call them, my grandma's cinnamon cookies. I like to make them bigger and under-bake just a little, so they stay ooey and gooey.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus 1 hour to chill 
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes plus 1 hour to chill 

Ingredients

Topping

Here's how you make them:

  1. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, salt and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, cream together the shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Put in the fridge and chill about an hour.
  4. Combine the sugar and cinnamon for the topping. Set aside.
  5. Roll the chilled dough into balls and then roll into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  6. Bake on cookie sheets in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 9 to 12 minutes, depending on how big you made them. Touch the tops to test for doneness (they should still be a little soft). DO NOT OVERBAKE!
