#26 :: Snickerdoodles

These are my favorite cookies!! And this is my favorite recipe to make them from. They've always come out perfect for me from this recipe.


  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the margarine or butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for about 30 seconds or till softened. Add about half the flour to the margarine. Then add the 1 cup sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar. Beat till thoroughly combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in the remaining flour. Cover and chill about 1 hour or till dough is easy to handle.

In a shallow dish combine the 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture to coat. Place balls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10-11 minutes or till edges are lightly browned. Remove cookies; cool on wire racks.

Makes about 36 cookies.

Recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens "Cookies Cookies Cookies" Cookbook.
