I saw that there are tons of snickerdoodle recipes on zaar, but I didn't see this one!! I found the recipe in cooking light and besides being simple to make they taste amazing!!


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine 3/4 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter in a medium bowl; beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in vanilla and egg.
  4. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt; stirring well with a whisk.
  5. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; beat just until combined.
  6. In a small shallow dish combine 1/3 cup sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon.
  7. Shape dough into walnut sized balls and roll in sugar mixture.
  8. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes or until tops crack.

Reviewed as part of PAC 09 Spring. A very good cookie. The outside had a nice, delicate crisp while still having a chewy inside. It is very cinnamony- but that's what a snickerdoodle is all about. I baked on a plain cookie sheet and a non-stick cookie sheet. The plain cookie sheet took 8 minutes and the non-stick took 10 minutes. 11 yr old DD took the picture.

I was hoping for a more fluffy cookie and these are quite flat and chewy. They are very tasty, just not what I was looking for.
