{Side note} This is my first time so it might not be as good as other snicker doodle instructables.


2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened , room temperature

1 1/4 c. granulated sugar, divided

1/2 c. packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tbsp. ground cinnamon

2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

2 cookie sheets

Parchment Paper

Mixer or Wooden Spoons

Mixing Bowl

Cooling Rack

Cinnamon-Sugar Mixture:

1/4 cup Sugar

1 1/2 Tablespoons Cinnamon

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies.

Make sure you have everything you need to make the cookies before you start or else you're going to have a bad time.

Preheat your oven to 350°. Layer two big baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon. Then on to the next step.

Step 2: Creaming Sugar, Butter, and Eggs

Start by creaming the butter and sugar for 4 to 5 minutes. This is an important step because the butter coats the sugar crystals and creates a smooth texture. In a separate mixing bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter and 1 cup of granulated sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Do it until it's light and fluffy. Then add the 2 eggs and your vanilla extract. Then mix for 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Step 3: Combining Wet and Dry Ingredients

In a bowl combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt until just combined. In a small bowl stir together cinnamon and sugar, and then set the bowl aside. Then fold the dry ingredients you previously mixed into the egg mixture, until it is combined.

Step 4: Forming the Cookies

If you have time wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 20 to 30 minutes. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop and roll the dough into 1 1/2 inch balls until round and smooth. Then roll balls in your cinnamon sugar mixture and coat well. Using a spoon coat cookie balls a second time making sure they are completely covered. Arrange balls about 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Note: to make flatter cookies, press down in the center of the balls before placing them in the oven. This helps them to keep from puffing up in the middle.

Step 5: Baking Cookies

Place cookies sheets in the middle rack of the oven. Bake until the cookies begin to crack, about 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for about 5 minutes on the cookie sheets. Then use a thin metal spatula to transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Step 6: Eating Your COOKIES!!!

Now you take your cookies out of the oven and give them a few minutes and then they should be ready. Then DIG IN!!!!!!
