Classic Snickerdoodle Cookies
1 hr 20 mins
1 hr 35 mins
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
3 cups flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a bowl of your stand mixer, cream softened butter and sugars together. ( I use salted butter so I don't have to measure out salt)
Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Add baking soda and cream of tartar
Add flour 1/2 - 1 cup at a time, stirring in between additions so you don't pouf flour everywhere!
Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 30 - 60 minutes.
Combine topping sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop out balls of dough and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mix.
Place on un-greased cookie sheet. ( I also use silicone baking mats for easy clean up)
Bake for 12-14 minutes depending on your oven.
Do NOT over bake.
