Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodles
1 cup butter, room temperature
1¼ cup sugar
1½ tsp vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar
1½ tsp cinnamon
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients.
Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture, mixing well between each addition.
The dough should not be sticky and should not be crumbly. If it is sticky, mix in flour one tablespoon at a time until it becomes not sticky. If the mixture is crumbly, mix in water one teaspoon at a time until the dough holds together.
Mix cinnamon and sugar together and place on a plate.
Measure dough with a ¼ cup measure and roll into balls. Roll each ball to coat well in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350?F for 12-15 minutes or until the center is just set.
Let cool 2 minutes then cool on a wire rack.
Makes 12 large cookies.
I found this recipe online (thepinningmama.com) and have to say this really is the best snickerdoodles I’ve ever made. They really did turn out to be both soft & chewy which led to them be quickly devoured. Besides what says Autumn better than the smell of cinnamon baking? In fact I think I’m going to make a batch right now.
