Like the coconut cookies, these Snickerdoodles are so soft that they melt in your mouth.


I like mine with a lot of cinnamon so I should have added a little more to roll it in but I didn’t want to overdue it. My sister-in-law also taught me to add extra cinnamon into the dough to make them even more cinnamon-y. I should have added a little more though so I adjusted it in the written recipe. I usually don’t measure how much I put in so it’s hard for me to know how much I do so I can share that amount. 1 tsp should be good…or maybe a little more.

These snickerdoodles make a really soft and really sticky dough so I really like to use my #20 scoop on these. Once you roll them in the cinnamon and sugar then you can handle them a little more easily.

This  recipe can make quiet a bit of Snickerdoodles. If you don’t want to bake them all up at once, you can get them all rolled up in the cinnamon and sugar and freeze the balls of dough.

I like to freeze several of the cookie recipes I’ll be sharing and then I mix and match what I bake up. I let the kids pick which cookie they want and we all get what we want and they are all hot and fresh without the mess.

Sometimes I just sneak a ball of dough and eat that too but, shhhhhh, don’t tell anyone.

I also couldn’t figure out why they were so mounded and not as flat as usual but then I remembered that I usually flatten the dough just a little before baking them. It’s not a huge deal but I do like them just a little more flat than in these pictures. They still tasted great though.

snickerdoodles 1


1 cup butter (two cubes), softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup sour cream
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Baking soda
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon

6 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon

1-Make sure you have all of your ingredients and make sure you work area is clean.
2-Turn your oven onto 350 degrees.
3-Using a mixer add 1 cup of softened butter and mix it until smooth. I like to use the Bosch mixer.
4-Add 2 cups of sugar and mix it until smooth. Scrape the sides if you have to.
5-Add your eggs and vanilla and mix again. Scrape the sides.
6-Add 1 cup of sour cream and mix.
7-Add the dry ingredients, including 1 ½ tsp of cinnamon and mix it until it’s all mixed together. Scrape the sides and mix it again.
8-In a separate bowl, add 6 Tbsp. sugar and 1 Tbsp Cinnamon and mix them together.
9-Using a #20 or 2Tbsp scooper or just make balls and put them in the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Roll them around and place them on a cookie sheet with a silicone liner. You will need enough space around because they can spread.
10-Flatten them a little before baking.
11-Bake them in a preheated oven for 13-15 minutes.
12-If you have frozen the balls, bake them at 325 degrees for about 18 minutes or until they are done.
13-Clean up your mess.
14-Eat, Share, Enjoy!!!
