Snickerdoodle Recipe

Good day, Friends! I hope you are having a good day.

My sister-in-law asked for my recipe after she read about my snickerdoodle baking session with Miss Baby.  A reader had left in the comment section about wanting the recipe.  Of course I am more than happy to share my recipe, but you might be disappointed to find out that my recipe is none other than what is found in none other than the Betty Crocker cookbook! And I didn’t attempt to make any changes like an impressive cook would…

Here it is:

1/2 cup 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 tbs sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon
1. In a mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.

2. Add about half of the flour, the 1 cup sugar, the egg, vanilla, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat till thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. Cover and chill1 hour.

3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Combine the 2 tbs sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls in sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake in a 375F overn for 10-11 minutes or till edges are golden. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Make about 36.


Notice the first time I ever attempted this recipe was WAY back in 2000. I feel old!!! But don’t let me spoil the enjoyment of these yummy snickerdoodles for you!


Thanks for stopping by. Before you leave, I would love to know if there’s any must-try cookie recipes out there! We are on a cookie kick lately at the Ivory Spring household.

  1. I will be making these soon..have heard of but never had recipe.
    One of my favorite cookie recipes (have made twice in past 2 wks) is:
    Almost One Cup of Everything Cookies

    1 cup butter (or margarine)
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup white sugar
    3 eggs, beaten
    1 cup peanut butter
    1 cup coconut
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1 cup flour
    1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup raisins (I use dried cranberries)
    1 cup pecans, chopped
    1 Tbsp baking soda
    Cream sugars and butter together, add eggs and peanut butter til blended.
    Combine all remaining ingredients, toss to lightly coat raisins. Mix into cream mixture, one third at a time.
    Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet. Bake 350′ for 10 minutes.
    Hope you try and enjoy as much as my family do.

  2. I love to collect and compare recipes. When I try new recipes and they fail, I go to my Betty Crocker Cookbook. Her recipes are right on the money. I have had her cookbook since 1959 and I can cook almost as good as my mom who cooks, in my opinion, as good as Betty Crocker.

  3. Favorite cookie recipe…..Miracle Cookies
    1 jar of peanut butter–about 18 oz.
    2 eggs beaten
    1 1/2 C sugar
    1 1/2 tspoon of vanilla
    Mix above well until smooth. It will be very thick. Roll into 1 inch balls, bake for 9 minutes at 350 degrees.
    Option—place chocolate chunk or chips on top of the balls and press down lightly before baking.

    Makes about 60.

  4. Thanks for the recipe!
    My son asked me to make Snickerdoodles last week and I used the recipe from the Joy of Cooking. They were delicious, but thin and crispy – he was hoping they would be chewy – I will definitely try your recipe this week. ♥

  5. Hi Wendy and thank you for the recipe!! if I knew it was from Betty Crocker’s book i wouldn’t have asked it!!… i think I am the only Italian on the Globe to have Betty’s book !!!
    i am going straight away to get it and make these cookies. Thanks again and have a nice day,
    ciao

  6. You must try Cowboy Cookies! I make mine with dark chocolate chunks and chopped pecans, instead of the semi sweet chocolate chips and walnuts in the recipe. They don’t last long!

    Family Fun is a long time favorite magazine, and I found the recipe and used it the first time when I was teaching preschoolers at a local daycare over the summer. Big hit with them (its a Cooking with Kids recipe.)
