1½ cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2⅔ cups flour

⅓ cups cocoa

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

CINNAMON AND SUGAR : *mix together

3 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Baking Utensils:

A mixing bowl and mixer

Cookie sheet

The following measuring cups/spoons: *If you need to have an adult help you retrieve the following

1 teaspoon

½ teaspoon

1 cup

½ cup

⅔ cup

⅓ cup

Step 2: Starting Out

Have an adult help you preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place butter in a dish that is safe to put in the microwave. Microwave the butter for ten seconds just to soften it enough to mix.

Step 3: Butter and Sugar

Put butter into the mixing bowl. Carefully measure 1 ½ cups of sugar into the bowl as well using the required measuring cups. Mix butter and sugar together until it looks fluffy.

Step 4: Making It Creamy

Add the eggs and the vanilla into your butter mix, and mix until it looks creamy.

Step 5: The Dry Stuff

Add the following ingredients into a separate bowl and mix together:

2⅔ cups flour

⅓ cups cocoa

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking soda

Step 6: Putting It All Together

Add the ingredients you just mixed into your other mixing bowl. Be sure to add this mix a little at a time while the mixer is going, or else you will have a big powder cloud of ingredients coming up from your mixer.

Step 7: Rolling It Up

One mixture is well combined, turn off your mixer, and remove the mixing bowl from the mixer. Scoop small pieces of dough from your mixer and roll them into balls.

Take the required amount of cinnamon and sugar for your cinnamon and sugar mix and measure it into a separate bowl. Mix well.

Roll your cookie dough ball in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Step 8: Preparing It to Bake

Put cookies on the cookie sheet. Leave plenty of room between because they will spread out a little bit.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Watch them carefully and don't over bake them. Make sure you have an adult help you put them in and take them out of the oven.

Step 9: Ta Da, You Now Have Snickerdoodles

One the cookies are done baking, let them cool on the cookie sheet just for a minute before you have an adult help you transfer the cookies to a wire cooling rack.

Enjoy your snickerdoodle cookies. Be sure you share them with your friends and family!
