Cookie Friday: Snickerdoodles

Happy Cookie Friday, everyone!  Today, I'm sharing a recipe for an all-time classic -- Snickerdoodles!

Sorry if this photo doesn't really "sell" these cookies.  I was in a bit of rush to take this photo before I shared these cookies with my co-workers, who gobbled them up quickly.

This recipe comes from the 2008 Iowa State Fair Cookbook.  (I can't wait for the state fair to start in a couple weeks!  I've been craving corn dogs in the worst way.)

Bake up a batch of snickerdoodles, and enjoy a taste of the Iowa State Fair from home.


From the 2008 Iowa State Fair Cookbook

  • 1 C. butter or margarine
  • 1-1/2 C. + 2 T. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2-3/4 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon

Cream together butter or margarine and 1-1/2 cups of the sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Sift together flour, baking soda and cream of tartar and gradually add to creamed mixture.  Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon.  Roll dough into balls.  Roll balls into cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Place on ungreased baking sheet.  Bake in 350 degree oven in 5 to 10 minutes.


  1. I haven't made these in a while....might have to, they look soooo good!

  2. They were good! I inhaled about a half dozen.
