  • 1 cup (240gr) butter (orchid salted butter is a good recommendation)

Baking Instructions:

  1. Before you start this classic snickerdoodle cookies recipe, prepare all ingredients. Then preheat the oven to 180o Celsius for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Set your electronic mixer to medium speed, and mix butter/margarine and white sugar. Slowly add the eggs, then mix altogether until blended well.
  3. In another container mix flour, vanilla extract, cream of tartar and baking soda. Stir well occasionally. After that, input in the previously made butter mixture. Stir them slowly or use the electronic mixer with low speed until blended. If the texture of the dough is too soft or sticky when rounded in the hand, more flour can be added into the mixture.
  4. Mix cinnamon powder along with the fine white sugar until well blended. Set it aside.
  5. Spoon the dough with scoop ice cream or using half part of the tablespoon then round it. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  6. Arrange on a non-sticky baking sheet then spread the butter and flour all over. Press each one of them slightly on the top using fingers so it doesn’t soar. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on the oven’s size and heat.
  7. When it has become browned, lift it up and cool it on the cooler for a short time. Voilà, snickerdoodle cookies are ready to be served. Enjoy!
