    Teresa in CO's Note:

    Title says it all. DO NOT OVERBAKE THEM, or you will be sorry. Best to pull them out when they look a little raw and let them harden a bit on the cookie sheet. I have given these as gifts, sold them, and made them for guests, but I never have any left over by the end of the day. They are also very pretty, with the nice "broken" top characteristic of Snicks.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 36

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Cream together butter and sugar.
    3. 3
      Add in eggs, one at a time, along with vanilla, until well-combined.
    4. 4
      Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, soda, cream of tartar) in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredient mix into the wet mix in 2-3 stages.
    5. 5
      Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon together in a small bowl.
    6. 6
      Use your hands to roll dough into little (ping-pong ball-sized) balls.
    7. 7
      Roll dough-balls in the cinnamon/sugar mixture so they're covered all the way around. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 or 3 inches apart.
    8. 8
      Bake 7 or 8 minutes, until they have spread out and have JUST started to turn brown. Remove from cookie sheets and place cookies on cooling rack to cool and set a little. If they're not completely cooked when they come out of the oven, let them cook a bit more on the cookie sheets, out of the oven. 7-8 minutes will make a nice, chewy cookie with a little crispness on the bottom.

      The flavor of these cookies is excellent. However, a ping pong ball is 38-40 mm; using this diameter the recipe yields 20 cookies. The baking time needs to be increased accordingly- this will vary based on individual ovens. Thanks Teresa! Will definitely make again.

      I made half a batch of these, and they turned out great! Very soft but they hold up well and taste exactly how a snickerdoodle should. I had no cream of tartar so I had to use baking powder instead and it worked! Made some for Holiday Cookie Swap 2011.
