These Snickerdoodles are soft, chewy and cinnamon-y.  A delicious and easy cookie for any time of year!  Makes a big batch so you can freeze half to enjoy later!

Hello friends!  Welcome to day #3 of Christmas Cookie Week! I hope you have enjoyed the first two recipes from this week:  Butter Tart Squares with A Shortbread Cookie Crust and Turtle Cookies.  So far I think the Turtle Cookies might be my favourite…well I love the butter tart squares too…oh, but I really love these Snickerdoodles…hmmm it’s so hard to choose.

Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

I had never actually made Snickerdoodles before, that’s kind of weird I know.  I have eaten them, just never made them.  And they’re a cookie my kids ask for a lot, so I figured there was no time like the present!  And this recipe did not disappoint.  These Snickerdoodles are soft, chewy and cinnamon-y.  Yummo.  My kids went crazy for them!


And they are so easy to make too, which is fabulous!  The recipe isn’t complicated so you can whip up a batch last minute before guests come over, or have them ready for when the kids get home from school.  My kids love coming home to fresh baked cookies!  The first thing they do after they get their boots off is head to the kitchen to see what’s waiting for them!  I love that, and I hope it’s something they remember fondly about their childhood.  🙂


I hope you enjoy these Snickerdoodles!  We sure did…they’re now in my cookie rotation full time.

  1. Okay, I am probably the only person in the country that has never eaten a snickerdoodle? I have heard of them and they seem to be on a lot of people’s cookie lists but it just has never happened to me. So, I am definitely going to make them I know that nothing will look as pretty and perfect as yours do….how DO you do that? But, I will give it a good honest go. I think I am a sloppy baker…really I do.

  2. We love these, my mom and the kids whipped up a batch last night as a matter of fact. Reminds us of Mary. Your pictures are gorgeous!!

  3. I have been making snickerdoodles for many years!!! They are so good. They are one of those batches of cookies you double because they are gone so fast. They are on my list to bake this weekend. 🙂

  4. OMG!!! These cookies were AMAZINGLY GREAT! This recipe is PERFECTION. I’m sooo glad I came across it on Pinterest. I’ve been looking for a perfect snickerdoodle recipe. I followed exactly as the recipe stated. They were chewy and crispy around the edges and looked just like your picture. I made them for Christmas but will be making them year round. Happy Holidays!
    Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

    1. I have never made them any other way, so I’m not really sure. I might try to make them again some day and lower the sugar! If you try them with less, let me know how they turn out! Happy Baking!

  5. I had to add about 1/3 cup more flour in order to keep them from spreading out all over the pan, but once I did that, they turned out great. The “failures” tasted great, too!
