I’ve tried a lot of cookies over the years and I’ve made a lot of cookies over the years. I just found a new favorite. This recipe for Snickerdoodles is the best one I’ve ever had. Hands down. I am a vanilla and caramel girl. I bake with chocolate a lot because 3 of the other 4 people in my family love it (JJ is with his momma!). Finding a recipe that doesn’t contain chocolate makes me sooo happy. Yes I’ve made Snickerdoodles before several times. But with this recipe I just couldn’t stop eating them. They are magical.
Recipe slightly adapted from Lovin’ From the Oven.
My notes on this are- use real butter (always) and to not over bake. The key to this and all of my favorite cookie recipes is to not bake them too long. I know ovens vary – some bake things quicker than others. I err on the side of under than over because they continue to cook after you take them out of the oven. Same thing goes for my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I used the palm of my hand to flatten them a bit after adding the balls to the cookie sheet. You don’t have to do that. But they turned out A+ in my book. Another note is that normally when making cinnamon/sugar mix, it’s usually 2 Tbsps of sugar to 1 tsp of cinnamon. I usually end up adding more sugar. But it’s just a personal preference of mine- less cinnamon, more sugar.
