Snickerdoodles – My favorite Snickerdoodle cookie recipe. Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and rolled in a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar.

We are big Snickerdoodle fans around here. Not only are Snickerdoodles my favorite cookie, they are also Will’s favorite cookie. Last year, when he was not feeling well and home from school, we made these cookies together.

We made these again the other day and we loved them just as much. This recipe is a great one to make with children. They can help with the measuring, mixing, rolling, and sugaring. These cookies are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They have a cinnamony crust that is just spicy enough so that you know that it is cinnamon, but not overpowering in the least bit. These cookies are my idea of the perfect cookie. And Will’s.

Will’s teacher’s are a wonderful mother-daughter team. The mom of the team had a surgery and was down for the count for awhile. While she was away, I made sure that she was well stocked in baked goods. Thankfully, she is all better and the other morning she handed me a grocery bag. I assumed that it was just plates and containers that she was returning. It was, but also 4 pounds of butter! A thank you if you will for sending her treats while she was away. I have not laughed that hard at 7:45am in a long time. So of course, I went home and made her these. 3.5 pounds of butter to go.

    I love snickerdoodles. I think it was because I used to make them when I was little with my grandma.

    I also love the tags on the package. Adorable. Where did you get them? They would be the perfect gift for a lot of people I know.

    Snickerdoodles are one of my all time favorite cookies! Cinnamon and sugar are meant to be together. These look great!

    I made these this afternoon with my 3-year-old daughter. What a perfect mother-daughter project for a Sunday afternoon! She helped at every stage and especially liked rolling the dough in the cinnamon sugar and pressing the dough down on the cookie sheet (although she got a bit overzealous and completely flattened a couple of them!). My daughter added her own special touch to the cookies by putting sprinkles on hers. We packaged some up and shared with neighbors. My girl was so proud that she had made the cookies herself! Thanks for the great recipe.

      that is awesome! I am so glad that you two had fun making Snickerdoodles. I hope that you will make other things with her, I love cooking with my children. It is one of my favorite things to do with them.

  4. Memoria

    Goodness!! I haven’t made snickerdoodles in a long time. I need to make some now.

    1. bakedbree

      You will be happy if you do. They are definitely in the top 3 of my favorite cookies.

    ahhhhh snickerdoodles….. My great grandma was a master at making snickerdoodles!! In fact my love of them comes from her. Every time we came to visit (even if we surprised her with a visit) she always seemed to have a fresh batch of snickerdoodles ready for us. To this day I can’t eat a snickerdoodle without thinking of her.

    I haven’t made snickerdoodles in YEARS (in fact I’m not sure my youngest children have experienced their goodness) can’t wait to try your recipe and share their tastiness with my kiddos!

    1. bakedbree

      I hope that you make it with your children. Mine love making them. And eating them.

    These look so easy! Snickerdoodles are my father in law’s favorite cookie, and, Tomorrow is his birthday! I made my morther in law German Chocolate cupcakes for her birthday, and, I’ll be making these tomorrow for my F.I.L. THanks so much for posting this. And, by the way, your little man is so cute!

    1. bakedbree

      me too! Snickerdoodles are my all time favorite cookie. Hope that he liked them.

    Hi Bree,
    I have to make cookies for a cookie exchange and I was going to make these. Am I missing it somewhere on your recipe how many cookies this recipe makes? I have to make 6 dozen, so I’m guessing I’ll probably have to double or triple it?

    1. bakedbree

      I would at least double it. I think that you can get 3 dozen.

  8. Caitlin

    Just made these and they are soooo delicious! 🙂

      I love a snickerdoodle! Glad that you liked them.

    I’m confused on the amount of butter for this recipe.
    By two sticks do you mean two whole sticks or two half sticks like you have in the picture?

    1. bakedbree

      They are not half sticks, they are all 1/2 cups, they are just packaged differently company to company.
