Gather Your Ingredients:
Before we dive into the art of baking, let’s make sure you have everything you need:
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- For rolling: 2 tablespoons granulated sugar + 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then add the vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft cookie dough forms.
In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon for rolling.
Take portions of the cookie dough and roll them into balls. Roll each ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, ensuring they’re coated generously.
Place the coated cookie balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the centers are slightly puffed.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, indulge in the goodness of your homemade snickerdoodles.
