Best Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe EVER

I have had many many snickerdoodle cookie recipes but this one by far has been the best one through the years we have made them.

these delightful cinnamon cookies are buttery and rich in flavor a childhood treat



A snickerdoodle is a childhood favorite. These cookies have been around as long as I can remember. 

Mom use to make them when I was a child, that was in the late 1960's. We love the smell of them. 

They kind of remind me of a buttery sugar cookie with cinnamon and sugar on top. The ingredients are usually always in the house. 

They go great with a cup of flavored teas, especially a cinnamon tea. 

An easy cookie that most folks have everything in the house to make them anytime with these basic ingredients with an exception for cream of tarter, that is one you will probably have to invest in.

Tip: If you don't have cream of tarter you can substitute lemon juice. For every 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tarter you can use 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar.

 It's a crunchy outside, soft inside cookie rolled or topped with cinnamon sugar. 

I love the whole cookie drenched in the sugar not just the tops. The original way to make them is sprinkling the cinnamon sugar on top
