These really are dreamy cookies: Tender and chewy with perfect Snickerdoodle taste! I doubled the salt and made four dozen cookies. My family loved them!!

These cookies are excellent! Perfect snickerdoodles: crunchy exterior, chewy interior, not too sweet, just the right amount of cinnamon...and downright addictive! We'll be making these again, for sure.

I had this recipe for years and misplaced it. Was SOOO glad to find it posted here and its works as great as my old one!! Fantastic cookies. Be sure to keep a very close eye while cooking and dont let them sit too long on cookie sheet. This helps keep that soft and chewy texture. I've used parchment paper in past so i can just slide it right off cookie sheet and onto racks to cool.

This is the exact recipe I use, except mine only calls for 2 tbsp white sugar and 3 tsp cinnamon. They are fabulous! I have tried several other recipes, but these are still the best.

These have always been a favorite cookie with kids and adults alike. I used all butter, only 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 3/4 teaspoon salt. I used a 2 tablespoon scoop to form the cookies, so got only 38 larger cookies. I adjusted the oven temperature to 375 degrees convection and baked for 8 minutes exactly. My recipe also said to let the cookies cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheets to let them firm up a bit. I find that I break fewer of them that way.

This is the exact same recipe that I've been making since third grade. When taking the cookies out of the oven, I like to rap the pan firmly on the counter a few times. This causes the cookie to fall, making it more chewy. And I agree with the poster above; the cream of tartar is just as important as the cinnamon. It's not a snickerdoodle without it.

Thank you, I had lost my recipe & needed to bake some for my Mom.A snickerdoodle isn't a snickerdoodle with out cream of tartar, like some other recipes listed.
