The *BEST* Snickerdoodle Recipe?

I need one! My husband absolutely LOVES snickerdoodles, but only has them at Christmas time. I want to make some to box up and wrap for under the tree, but I want a "tried and true", awesomely yummylicious recipe for them. Anyone have any suggestions?

Oh, and I've never made snickerdoodles before, so I'm a total newb at making them

Thanks in advance!

Snickerdoodle (or "cinnamon cookies") are my sons favorites so we make them frequently. I have tried many recipes and so far this one is the best:


3 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temp
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375. Stir together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. In another bowl, beat the butter until creamy and smooth. Add 2 cups sugar and beat until fluff and lightened in color. Add eggs, milk and vanilla. Beat well.

Add dry ingredients and mix just until well combined. Form dough into 1 inch balls. Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls in sugar mixture. Place balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes at 375. If you like them soft, take them out at exactly 8 minutes- they go from soft to crunchy quickly!

This is my grandmother's recipe & it's excellent! That may be in part due to the amount of fat in it...because I have it from another source that is virtually the same - EXCEPT that it calls for ½ c soft butter or margarine or shortening, instead of the full cup.


1 c soft shortening
1½ c sugar
2 eggs
2¾ c flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

Mix together thoroughly shortening, sugar & eggs. Mix together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda & salt. Stir in first mixture. Chill dough Roll into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in mixture of:

2 Tbl sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Place ~2” apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 8 - 10 min until lightly browned but still soft (these cookies puff up first, then flatten with crinkled tops.) Yield ~5 dozen, 2” cookies.

If your husband is also a fan of eggnog, this recipe is pretty good as well.

Eggnog Snickerdoodles

2¼ c all-purpose flour
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1½ c sugar
1 c butter, softened
½ tsp rum extract
½ tsp brandy extract
2 eggs
1 tsp nutmeg
¼ c colored (or plain) sugar

Heat oven to 400°F. In large mixer bowl, combine all cookie ingredients (except ¼ cup colored or plain sugar and nutmeg). Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Combine the ¼ cup colored sugar with the nutmeg; set aside. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Remove.
