Snickerdoodle Cookies

These are my son's all time favorite cookies...he has a thing for cinnamon for sure! Over the past year, I have tried MANY recipes and found this one to be very good! He likes a soft cookie and this recipe delivers that along with a yummy flavor.


3 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375.

Stir together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.

In another bowl, beat the butter until creamy and smooth. Add 2 cups sugar and beat until fluffy and lightened in color. Add eggs, milk and vanilla and mix well.

Add dry ingredients and mix just until well combined. Form dough into 1 inch balls. Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon together and roll balls in mixture. Place balls on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes. **If you like them soft, take them out right at 8 minutes- they go from soft to crunchy very fast!
