Soft and Chewy Snicker-doodle Cookies

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!
