Soft & Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Author: Kimber


  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • In your KitchenAid mixer cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients - flour, baking powder and salt, and mix to combine.
  • Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture, mixing well between each addition.
  • The dough should not be sticky and should not be crumbly. If it is sticky, mix in flour one tablespoon at a time until it becomes not sticky. If the mixture is crumbly, mix in water one teaspoon at a time until the dough holds together.
  • Mix cinnamon and sugar together and place on a plate.
  • Measure dough with a 1/4 cup measure and roll into balls. Roll each ball to coat well in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on a cookie sheet lined with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  • Bake at 350?F for 12-15 minutes or until the center is just set.
  • Let cool 2 minutes then cool on a wire rack.
  • Makes 12 large cookies.
