Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies and this is a great recipe. I did use butter flavored Crisco sticks and they worked nicely for these cookies. Easy to make and fun to roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Will put this in my favorites cookbook! Thank you MaryMc for sharing your aunt Sis's recipe with us. Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef 2009.
These were very good! I halved the recipe so that we could try them. I used egg beaters in place of the egg but that's the only thing that I did differently. My cookies puffed and never flattened. They were pretty though! Thanks so much for posting!
I make cookies from scratch and have sold them all over the world. I was at home today and even though I see and eat and smell cookies all of the time, I was hungry for a snickerdoodle. I tried this recipe and using my small cookie scoop it made 3 1/2 dozen cookes that were excellent. I cooked at 375 for 6-8 minutes. Every pan was perfect.
I was looking to see if Paula Deen's Snickerdoodles from her Kitchen Classic cookbook was already posted. Your recipe is exactly the same as the one she uses except she suggests setting oven at 350Â°F and cooking for 8-10 minutes. I plan to try them next time the kiddies ask for Snickerdoodles and I will post a review. In the meantime, I am adding your recipe to my Paula Deen collection. Thanks for posting!
These are great, I was looking for a recipe that didnt use butter as I'd run out so this was perfect. I made them with my 2 year old grandson and we both had a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing.
Yippie - I found it! There are so many similar Snickerdoodle recipes that I didn't want to post another! Yours is the closest to the one that we have made for many years. The oven temperature of 400° is what makes them crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening because I like the buttery taste but they keep they stay puffier with shortening. Super cookies! Thanks for posting!
Thanks for a great easy snickerdoodle recipe. My kids wanted to make these, and these came out great. I was out of vanilla, and this recipe didn't call for it, so that is why I chose it! I did use stick margerine, as I was out of shortening, and they were still perfect! Thanks for posting!
These have been a family favorite for years! This recipe produces a cookie with a crunch at first bite (no doubt from the wonderful sugar/cinnamon topping), but inside is a chewy buttery cookie. Perfection all the way! Great to have with a cup of hot chocolate after shovelling your driveway.
