If you love cinnamon, you will fall in love with this cookie. This is my all time favorite cookie. It's easy and fast to make. I love making these because you dont need to chill the cookie dough. If you crave for some homebaked cookies, this can be your savior.
Recently, I made some Snickerdoodles because I had to use up my butter and I decided to make some Snickerdoodles because it's easy to make and I can store them easily.
- 230 gr unsalted butter
- 267 gr granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract, I omitted it because the price of vanilla extract has been skyrocketing so I save it for special purpose
- 375 gr all purpose flour
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 50 gr granulated sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 190°C and line two baking tray with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the AP flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
- For coating: in a small bowl, whisk the two ingredients. Set aside.
- In a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream the butter for about 2 minutes on medium high spees. Then add the sugar, mix them well. Scrape down the bowl.
- With the mixed running on low speed, add in the egg then vanilla extract.
- Add in the dry ingredients, mix until well combined.
- Roll 1 1/2 tbsp of the cookie dough into a ball then roll it in the coating mixture. Arrange them on the baking tray and bake them for 11-12 minutes. If the cookie doesn't look flat, use a spatula to flatten it. Mine came out flat, as seen in the pictures.
- Leave it to cool on the baking tray before transferring to the cool rack.
I have also tried making Snickerdoodles with salted raw milk butter and omitted the salt. They both were good but I prefer the original recipe with unsalted butter.
If you make this cookie, please don't hesitate to let me know! :-)
