World’s Best Snickerdoodle Recipe

This is a recipe that I begged a sweet lady from our church for back when Prince Charming and I were dating. She brought her amazing snickerdoodles to a college class at church and they were the best snickerdoodles I have ever had in my life. I’ve been making them quite regularly since! Here is the printable snickerdoodle recipe.


 1. Soften 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of shortening. Yes people, these are healthy. :)



 2. Cream butter, shortening, 2 eggs, and 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Set aside.



 3. Mix (in a separate bowl) 2 3/4 cups flour, 2 teaspoons cream of tartar, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.


 4. Mix wet and dry ingredients together.



 5. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.



6. Mix 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl.



 7. Use your handy-dandy cookie scooper to make cookie dough balls. PS-  If you don’t have one of these little seriously need one. It’s probably one of the most-used kitchen tools I own…I’m not really sure what that says about me and cookies. :/



8. Roll cookie dough in cinnamon mixture.



 9. Place on pan and bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes (or until pretty and golden, but still soft).







    1. It’s one of my favorites because I typically have all the ingredients on hand and don’t have to make a sudden trip to the grocery store for chocolate chips or anything. :)

  1. This is the recipe I use, too, and I always get lots of compliments. Be sure not to bake them too long so they stay soft when they cool! My oven is a little on the hot side so I have to turn the temperature down a little from what the recipe says.

    1. Just freeze the cookie dough balls after you have rolled them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Then let them thaw before baking.
