    Perfect softness on the inside with a crisp, cinnamony outside, Snickerdoodles are my all time favorite cookie.  I’ve had so many different versions, that I’m practically a connoisseur. When putting together my own recipe, I was extremely particular.  The cookie itself had to be buttery and soft. The outside had to be just the right amount of cinnamon flavor with enough sugar to create a crispy exterior.

    I think nationally, the most popular cookie is chocolate chip.  Not at my house though… It’s Snickerdoodles all the way! Some cookies hold their shape when baking.  Snickerdoodles are a type that will “melt” when they bake. So you have to be mindful how far apart you place them.  The cinnamon sugar coating spreads out too, creating cracks like you would see in a crinkle cookie.

    So what is the secret that makes a snickerdoodle a snickerdoodle?  It’s not just the cinnamon flavor. I can’t tell you how many cinnamon cookies I see parading around pretending to be snickerdoodles.  A snickerdoodle is a specific type of cookie. The texture is soft in the middle and crispy on the outside because of the cream of tartar in the dough, and the cinnamon sugar coating on the outside.  Only those cookies are real snickerdoodles. So I present to you a recipe that I tested and tweaked many times to get the perfect snickerdoodle taste and texture. This is not a cinnamon cookie, it’s a true snickerdoodle!  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I have.
