Snickerdoodle cookies are by far one of my favorites. The smell of baking sugar and cinnamon brings to me a bliss – a “Heaven” you might say. Not to mention…they are one of the simplest cookies to make.

Below is my very own recipe – it’s pretty standard (I’ve adjusted it over trying numerous different recipes). Please note that this recipe only makes about two dozen cookies.

 ** Cookie **

  • 1.25 cups Flour
  • 1.25 tsp Baking Powder
  • 0.5 tsp Cinnamon
  • 0.5 cup Butter
  • 7 tbsp (almost 0.5 cup) of Brown Sugar
  • 7 tbsp (almost 0.5 cup) of Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp Vanilla

       ** Topping **

  • 0.25 cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Either grease cookie sheet or line with Aluminum foil or the like.
  3. Mix all cookie ingredients well.
  4. Make cookie dough balls about one inch in diameter. Roll in topping.
  5. When cookie sheets are prepared, use a fork to press down and flatten each cookie (as this will help them to bake appropriately) and then sprinkle the remaining topping over the cookies.
  6. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

Although I love a warm snickerdoodle (or many warm snickerdoodles 😉 ), these can be enjoyed at any temperature as long as they are properly stored in an sealed container.
