Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies created by Lidya

These cookies are too perfect to be true! They are so soft when bitten into and chewy when you are indulging it. Be sure to follow step by step though as one mistake (not chilling dough or too heaping of a measurement) could ruin the cookie. Hope you enjoy just as our family does!

    I added 2 teaspoons vanilla, subbed 2 teaspoons baking powder instead of baking soda, took out the cream of tartar, and scooped them without chilling and they came out delicious.

    I don't know how previous reviewer missed the sugar. It's the 5th ingredient listed and in the instructions. I followed recipe to a tee, and my cookie eaters ate all of them before bedtime. Loved them!

    Whoever submitted this omitted the sugar, to correct add 1 1/2 cups sugar, I also added an additional egg and these cookies came out very well. I have made the changes to the recipe and they have been posted posted, this should correct any problems. By the way, day three and the cookies are still soft.
