Just gather up all of these perfect and tried recipes and you are ready to go to town in the kitchen and impress your family with the most delicious holiday cookies.
Without further ado, let’s get to my chosen recipe!
Snickerdoodle cookie recipe-
We recently met a new friend who loves snickerdoodle cookies and since I love to spoil my friends with baked goods, I started to research and to make them more often that I ever had. I realized that this delicious and soft treat has been so underrated in our holiday baking!
I hope you will give this easy snickerdoodle recipe a try because I know you will fall in love with the soft and chewy sugar coated cookie with the perfect hint of cinnamon touch.
There isn’t only one secret to keep the snickerdoodle soft and chewy, it is more of a few things you do and together they give you the best snickerdoodle cookie you’ve ever had. Here they are:
- Use the cream of tartar- I’ve seen that many people try to replace the cream of tartar with something else, but I have learned that when it comes to classics, you stick to the original concept and enjoy the best results.
- Do not over bake- If you want your cookie to stay super fluffy and chewy, make sure to set up a timer! Check on them often the first time you make them to see if you need to adjust the time. When I make them smaller for gifts, like today, they take less time than usual. They will be done before the top starts to crack.
- Be generous with the cinnamon and sugar- roll those cookies in the cinnamon and sugar and make sure you don’t miss a spot! This is the step that give you the little crunch on the outside and the delicious cinnamon taste.
- Use real butter- That should go without saying! But just in case you are starting to get into baking and need the extra encouragement. Real butter will always be your best friend! The taste is just delicious.
Below you will find the full recipe. Have fun baking and enjoy!
I made them very small this time so that they could be packaged a specific way for gifting. But you can make them much bigger if you prefer.
