Gram's Snickerdoodles

Gram's Snickerdoodles by car2ngrl

Here's my mother-in-law's recipe for snickerdoodles. Jan may no longer be with us but she was kind enough to leave us her cookies.


  • 1/2 cup of soften butter (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • dash of salt
  • Sugar Coating:
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
18 cookies


Preheat oven to 400ยบ.

Cream butter in a large bowl.

Add sugar and mix until smooth.

Blend in egg.

Gradually add dry ingredients, making sure each addition is incorporated before adding the next.

In a small bowl, mix the coating ingredients.

Scoop out a heaping teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball with your hands.

Drop the dough ball into the bowl of cinnamon sugar and lightly coat.

Place on an ungreased cookie sheet -- at least two inches apart.

Bake 8-10 minutes.
