This recipe is adapted from The Pioneer Woman from The Food Network website.
What I love about this recipe is first, it’s addicting. Second, it’s easy to make. (no chilling required.) Third, it’s from The Pioneer Woman so you know it tastes good. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a buttery cookie with cinnamon and sugar!
-Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
-Cream your room temperature and white sugar together. Next, add in the eggs and mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk in the dry ingredients together.
Slowly add the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients. Use a rubber spatula to mix.
In a small bowl, add in the extra white sugar and cinnamon.
Next, get out your cookie sheets. Line cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Start rolling out the dough into balls about 1 1/2-2 tbsp each.
Now, take the rolled dough balls in the small bowl of cinnamon sugar mixture. Place back on the cookie sheet.
-Don’t flatten the balls before baking. Leave it how it is.
-Bake for 8-10 minutes. (I bake mine for 8-9.)
When you take the cookies out of the oven they will look slightly underdone, that’s okay. Don’t cook them longer. Let the hot cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before putting it on a cooling rack.
Every time I make these cookies, I eat two immediately. I can’t help it. A hot fresh snickerdoodle cookie is the best!
Ingredients for Cookie Dough-
- 1 c. softened unsalted butter (2 half cup sticks)
- 1 1/2 c. white granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 3/4 c. all purpose unbleached flour
- 2 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
Ingredients for Cinnamon Sugar Coating-
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tbsp white granulated sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cream the white sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer.
- Add the eggs and mix all together.
- In a separate bowl, add the flour, cream of tarter, salt, and baking soda. Whisk together.
- Slowly, add in the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients. Mix with a rubber spatula.
- In a separate small bowl, make the cinnamon sugar coating. Mix cinnamon and white sugar together. Set aside.
- Get your cookie trays ready. Place silicone baking sheets on the trays or line with parchment paper.
- Start by rolling dough into 1.5-2 tbsp balls. Roll the cookie dough balls in the cinnamon sugar coating, then place on the cookie sheet.
- Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake! I bake my cookies at 8-9 minutes. The cookies will look underbaked, but they are not! Keep hot cookies on the cookie try for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
