I'm not sure who came up with the name of Snickerdoodles, but whatever they are called, they are delicious. Cinnamon and sugar and a soft, chewy cookie. Match made in cookie heaven.


2 sticks butter, softened
1 3/4 c white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
3 c flour


3 TBSP white sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar for about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time while mixer is running. Add vanilla and mix. Add salt, baking soda and cream of tartar mixing well. Add flour one cup at a time while mixing. After all flour is mixed in, let dough chill in fridge for 30-60 minutes. Once dough has chilled, roll dough into one inch balls, and roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place 12 dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for 9-11 minutes. They may look slightly uncooked. Remove from oven and let them sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes until they set. Yields about 36 cookies.
