This is probably the best snickerddodle recipe that I have tried. Exactly the way that I like them, crunchy on the outside and soft in the midle.
We have been making these for years... they are delicious! I'm so glad I found my recipe and din't have to input it. Thanks!
Really great recipe! I made it almost exactly as written, but I was short on granulated sugar, so I subbed brown (loosely packed) for about 1/2 the sugar in the cookies and reserved a bit of proper granulated for rolling them. I only needed 1/8 cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon for rolling.
Made 1-1/2" balls and baked them for 10 minutes. Awesome stuff.
These are perfect!! Crunchy and chewy!! My Hubby's favorite cookie! I am sure Santa will love them too!! Thanks for posting!!
Outstanding! I'm living overseas in SE Asia and hadn't had snickerdoodles in many years. I actually went to the store and bought an electric mixer just to make these cookies! I had to omit the cream of tartar as I couldn't find it at the local market here, but the end result was still superb. I halved the recipe and got a yield of 26 two-inch cookies. I refrigerated the dough for about 15 minutes; makes it much easier to work with. I had to increase the cook time to 11 minutes. I also used baking parchment. Perfect, awesome cookies! Thanks for a great recipe.
These were awesome! I had to cook them a little longer than the recipe said but they turned out great! MUCH better than the last snickerdoodle recipe I tried! :^) Thanks so much!
Oh goodness, these are fabulous. I haven't had Snickerdoodles since I was little girl and they just as scrumptious as I remember (:
Every single time I have made these they were perfect! As long as I didn't forget about them in the oven hehe
These were great cookies! After coming out of the oven I tapped the cookie sheet on my counter to collapse the cookie centers so that the middles stay nice and chewy. My only complaint is that I think this amount of shortening causes the outer rim of the cookie to be crispy rather than crunchy--in other words, the crispiness tastes like it was caused by extra fat rather than the cooking...hard to explain I guess. Still great cookies, but I may try to cut back on the shortening next time. Thanks!
This is the closest recipe to the one in my OLD Betty Crocker cookbook that I lost and could not find. These are my sons absolute favorite. I do use a bit less sugar in the topping, I like to taste more cinnamon. My son brought these to work and I had get the recipe for his manager. We'll get that boy a raise yet! :) ...these are perfect, in flavor and texture.
