These are the BEST Snickerdoodles ever!! Perfectly soft and chewy in the middle and crisp on the edges. A buttery sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon and sugar.
- 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter
- 2 cups (380g) granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon (5ml) pure vanilla extract
- 3 cups (420g) all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon cream of tarter
For the coating
- ¼ cup (47.5g) granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon (7.5g) cinnamon
- In your stand mixer, combine the butter with the sugar and beat on medium speed until well creamed together.
- Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix into the butter and sugar until the eggs are well beaten.
- In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Slowly add into batter and beat on medium low speed until well combined and dough starts to form.
