Let’s Make It!

  • Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Gather all your cookie ingredients: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons cream of tartar, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 large eggs room temperature, 1/2 cup unsalted butter, and 1/2 cup shortening.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon for the coating.
  • Line your baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Whisk together in one bowl the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.
  • Beat together in another bowl the butter, shortening, and 1 1/2 cups sugar until fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs into the fluffy mixture until well blended.
  • Gradually mix the flour mixture into the fluffy mixture just until combined.
  • Roll the dough into 1 1/2-inch balls, and then roll the balls in the cinnamon-sugar.
  • Place the coated balls 3 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Flatten the balls slightly with the back of a spoon.
  • Pop your baking sheets into the preheated oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
  • Allow your delectable snickerdoodle cookies to cool slightly on the baking sheets before moving them to cooling racks to cool completely.
  • Once cooled, grab one (or two), enjoy, and share the snickerdoodle sensation with friends and family!

That Was Quick!
