1 1/2 cups
2 3/4 cups
sifted all-purpose flour
cream of tartar
This recipe is a delicious classic!! However, my recipes specifies 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter instead. I usually add an extra tablespoon or two of flour to the batter and then chill it for several hours before baking. This ensures "thick", perfectly formed cookies. View my submitted photo and see for yourselves. Thanks for the recipe!!! This one ROCKS!!!
I followed the directions exactly, but the cookies tasted horrible and puffed up too much. I will not use this recipe again!
So easy to make and very good. I ommitted the salt & used salted butter. A helpful tip for coating the cookies in the sugar/cinnamon mixture is to put the mixture in a ziplock baggie and then add the balls of dough. It is an easy mess free way to coat the cookies.
Excellent! This is the best snickerdoodle recipe I have tried in many years. The real test was how long they lasted in the cookie jar...well, they never made it to the jar! Very soft, just the right chewy-ness. I used less sugar in the batter and they stayed softer.
These freeze great. Roll the dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture and throw them in a Ziploc bag. When you want some cookies, grab a few and put them right on the cookie pan -- frozen. They taste just as good. It's weird, this is an old fashion recipe, and they don't seem like anything too special, but people just go nuts for these. I swear, it's like everyone loves a snickerdoodle.
I'm a big snickerdoodle fan and these cookies are one of the best I've ever made! I (like some other reviewers)added a tsp. of vanilla, and I also replaced the shortening with butter. Love these cookies!
Pretty good, but I would change a few things. And a teaspoon of vanilla and ditch the salt. It gives the cookie a funny aftertaste. I also used the butter flavored crisco. I got 30 cookies out of one batch.
Love it Love it Love it! I had never made these cookies befor today but now will be my fav! I did omit the salt these cookies dont need it, plus i chill the dough before making into balls. The chilled dough makes the perfect crackled top. Wonderful cookies that are so easy to make!
