The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies

This is my go-to recipe for easy snickerdoodle cookies!

Snickerdoodles are a cinnamon-sugar coated, soft and chewy sugar cookie, and also a perennial classic!

Cream butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together using a mixer, about 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy.

Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl and mixing until combined.

Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt, mixing just until combined.

Use a cookie scoop to scoop out rounded balls of dough.  Roll into balls and roll in a the cinnamon sugar mixture until coated.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until edges are set and slightly golden. They will continue to set as they cool. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

These taste just like my childhood - especially when served with a glass of cold milk!
