I found this recipe in a Martha Stewart Cookbook.

  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt (if using, we did not because we use salted butter).
  3. In another bowl, beat together the butter and 1 and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Mix in the eggs. Gradually add in the flour mixture.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining sugar with the cinnamon.
  5. Form the dough into 20 balls. Roll each one in the cinnamon mixture. Place ion baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake cookies, rotating sheets half way through, until edges are golden, 12 to 15 minutes.


Verdict: So the recipe didn’t mention anything about flattening the cookies when you put them on the baking sheet and I guess I thought they would expand in the oven. But they did not. I’ll know for next time: flatten snickerdoodles down!

I don’t think I will be making this recipe again. I found that the cookies didn’t have much of a taste. The only thing that gave them any taste was the cinnamon sugar coating.
