Snickerdoodle Cookies ~ A Classic


I don't know of anyone who doesn't like Snickerdoodles; the crisp-tender, buttery cinnamon-sugar cookies!


My mother had been making them long before I was born, and apparently the recipe dates back to the 1800's or beyond.






Such an easy cookie to make, and they make the kitchen smell so heavenly as they bake. :)






Some recipes call for a combination of solid shortening blended with butter or margarine; and those are very good ~ the one I use is an all-butter recipe; you can find it on my recipe blog ~



Please click HERE if you would like a printable copy of the recipe.






Absolutely delicious with a glass of icy-cold milk, a cup of coffee, or hot or iced tea. :)

  1. Hi Mari,

    We love snickerdoodles around here and your shots are gorgeous. The colors you choose really help a very plain cookie shine.

  17. Pls confirm on the instructions for the snicker doodle recipe. It mentions baking soda not baking powder. Please clarify to which one. I'm looking forward in trying your recipe.
