Here is my favorite snickerdoodle recipe...

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl cream shortening, butter, the 1&1/2 cups sugar, salt, cream of tartar, baking soda and vanilla.
  3. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  4. Stir in flour.
  5. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Form dough into 1 inch balls, press into sugar cinnamon mix and place on cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for around 10 minutes, or until dough starts to turn a nice, golden brown.


  1. mmm i love snickerdoodles and their crazy name. maybe i'll make some tonight.

    sidenote: does anyone know what cream of tartar actually is? anyone?

  2. no but your mac dictionary does. Apparently it's a by-product of wine fermentation. Who knew?
