I was SO happy to find a snickerdoodle recipe that required Cream of Tartar...it isn't a proper Snickerdoodle unless it has that ingredient...it's just a sugar cookie, otherwise! These turned out light, fluffy, cinnamon-y...in other words, just delicious and perfect! Great recipe and thanks for posting a Classic American Cookie. :) Made for Spring PAC 2010.
This is identicle to a recipe i am very familiar with. The only difference is that instead of using 1 cup of butter it uses 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening which leads to a softer cookie
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 a batch and they turned out amazing, they were gone in less than an 2 hours. I absolutely recommend this recipe. They were delicious and turned out beautifully! Thank you so much!
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.
Good recipe, but if you are high altitude you need to add quite a bit more flour. I added an extra 1/2 cup and they still came out flat as pancakes. Added even more to the second batch and they came out great.
excellent cookie!!! well loved by the family, especially warm out of the oven! yum!
