This is the best snickerdoodle recipe for creating chewy cookies filled with sugar and cinnamon goodness.best snickerdoodle recipe

This might possibly be the best snickerdoodle recipe ever.

Snickerdoodles by the fire anyone?  After cooking the best snickerdoodle recipe ever, my firepit had the best lighting for photos of my latest creation.  🙂

With the start of school only 5 days away, I’m finding myself gravitating toward recipes with simple ingredients and easy to throw together baking instructions.


Enter…snickerdoodles.  Classic, easy, straight forward ingredients, and always a crowd pleaser.

I love stacking cookies….so picturesque, don’t you agree?  I love how this chewy snickerdoodle recipe puffs up while cooking and creates the perfect cookie texture.  I dare say, this might be the best snickerdoodle recipe ever.

Tips:

  1. I like to use shortening in my cookie recipes to create a lighter, puffier texture.  I used 1 cup of shortening in these cookies instead of mixing in butter as well.
  2. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on a plate, and then stir together.  Its easier to roll the dough balls on a plate rather than a large bowl as I’ve done in the past.


A whole rubbermaid container full of deliciousness.

This is an easy snickerdoodle recipe you can throw together quickly when the sugar monster attacks.  Its also the best snickerdoodle recipe in what whole wide world. 🙂

Enjoy!
