Snickerdoodles = heaven

Stack of yumminess

Do you see these? These are snickerdoodles, and they are one of the most underrated cookies in the universe. Everyone craves chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies … all delicious. But these buttery, cinnamony delights can hold their own.

This is a recipe based on the Betty Crocker snickerdoodle recipe, only better.


1.5 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup shortening

2 eggs

2.75 cups flour

2 tsps cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp Kahlua

To roll finished dough in: 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tbsps cinnamon

The key changes from the Betty Crocker recipe include the addition of Kaluah, of cinnamon in the cookie dough, of extra salt (a lot of extra salt), extra cinnamon in the sugar/cinnamon rolling mixture and a heavily greased cookie sheet.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cream sugar, eggs, cinnamon, kahlua, butter and shortening with mixer until smooth. Add baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt, mix. Slowly add flour, mixing. When dough is finished, roll in balls (about 2 tablespoons big) and roll the balls in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on heavily greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes. Watch carefully. Snickerdoodles very quickly go from underdone, to done, to burnt. Will make about 3 dozen.

Remove from pan to cooling rack immediately to avoid over cooking. Enjoy when warm and buttery.

    I dunno, Mallory. Better than chocolate chip cookies? That’s hard to believe. If you’ll supply both kinds of cookies I”m willing to do some taste testing, though. It’ll probably take about two dozen of each for me to be sure.
