Who doesn’t love a good snickerdoodle cookie!

One of our family favorites- whip up a batch ASAP!


Preheat your oven to 375⁰. Add the following ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment.

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs

With medium speed; aerate for 3-4 minutes. While doing that, place the following dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk

  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tarter
  • ¼ teaspoons salt

With the mixer turned down on low, add the dry ingredients only until just incorporated.

In another bowl combine approximately 2 Tablespoons sugar with 2 tablespoons good cinnamon (you can eyeball this!) Using medium cookie scoop (#40) scoop dough into balls and roll into cinnamon/ sugar mixture- place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes. These cookies should be a light golden brown- they will raise and crack. A great cookie for dunking as they tend to harden quickly.

  2. Yum!! This post is making my mouth water. Lets make these at our sleepover Friday night 🙂 then we’ll for sure fit in our wedding dresses.. Ha!
