I first found out about Snickerdoodles from the Recipezaar Christmas cookie special so I looked for a recipe with ingredients I had on hand. These were so easy to make and absolutely delicious. Amazing how delicious considering they are so simple and don't contain chocolate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl mash together the margarine and sugar. Add the egg and beat until everything is creamy. Add the baking powder, salt and flour. Stir it up until you have a nice thick dough. In a cereal bowl, combine the cinnamon and the 2 tablespoons sugar.
  2. Shape the dough into balls the size of walnuts or egg yolks. Roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place the coated balls on an oiled cookie sheet. Using the bottom of a glass, press the dough down to flatten the cookies slightly. Bake them at 400F for 10 minutes. If your oven runs hot, turn it down to 375°F.
