Welcome to the world of Snickerdoodles! This classic cookie is a favorite in many households and is a staple in holiday baking. The combination of sweet and cinnamon makes them irresistible. Today, I will guide you through a simple, yet delicious recipe to make perfect snickerdoodles.


  • 170g (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 300g (1 1/2 cups) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 5ml (1 teaspoon) vanilla extract
  • 375g (3 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 5ml (1 teaspoon) baking soda
  • 2.5ml (1/2 teaspoon) cream of tartar
  • 2.5ml (1/2 teaspoon) salt

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:

  • 50g (1/4 cup) granulated sugar
  • 10ml (2 teaspoons) cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 190°C (375°F) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Gradually add this to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined.
  4. Make the cinnamon-sugar coating by mixing together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  5. Shape the dough into balls, roll in the cinnamon-sugar coating, and place on the prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Make sure your butter is at room temperature before you start. This will ensure your cookies have a soft and chewy texture.
  • For a stronger cinnamon flavor, feel free to add more cinnamon to your sugar coating.
  • These cookies will last up to a week in an airtight container at room temperature.


And there you have it – perfect Snickerdoodles! This recipe is simple to follow and yields delicious results. Whether you’re a beginner baker or a seasoned pro, you’ll love baking (and eating) these classic cookies. Enjoy!
