Snickerdoodles

Who doesn’t love a Snickerdoodle?  Snickerdoodles are easy to make cookies that are delicately sweet, light and buttery, and with just the right amount of spicy cinnamon.   Not to mention that a batch of these tasty cookies make the BEST thank you gift ever.  These Snickerdoodles were baked as a big thank you to a coworker who so generously offered to share his office space with a person from my department.  Thanks again Bob, I hope that you enjoyed the cookies! – Tessa

Ingredients:

  • 2 3/4 cups white flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp coarse salt (I like pink Himalayan salt)
  • 1 cup salted butter (room temp)
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbls. turbinado (coarse) sugar
  • 1 Tbls white sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • pinch of coarse salt

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium size mixing bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  In a separate mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat for about a minute more.   Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until well mixed.

In a small bowl, mix together the turbinado sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and a big pinch of the coarse salt.  Using a cookie scoop, shape dough into 48 – one inch balls.  Roll each ball in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Place on a parchment paper or silicone mat lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.  Remove from oven, cool on a wire rack, and enjoy!  Makes 48 cookies.
