Snickerdoodle Cookies

My grandma made the best cookies! She was famous for her Snickerdoodles. Her secret was adding melted butter to the coating ingredients. The added butter gives these cookies an delicious crunch.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks at room temperature)

  • 1 ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 ¾ cups flour

  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • Optional: 1 cup crushed honey roasted pecans

Recipe Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Sift flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt together.

  3. Beat the butter, sugar and eggs in your stand mixer.

  4. Blend in the dry ingredients and optional crushed honey roasted pecans.

  5. Shape dough into balls. NOTE: Use a small cookie scoop for perfect size!

  6. Mix the melted butter, cinnamon and sugar together. When you add butter to the coating mixture you get an extra crunch to the outside of your cookie!

  7. Roll the cookie balls in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

  8. Place two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  9. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set.

  10. Remove from baking sheet immediately.

  11. Enjoy!
