Not only do snickerdoodles taste delicious, but they also have a fun name! Finish off this classic snickerdoodles cookie recipe with a cinnamon-sugar dusting. After rolling the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar, give them ample room on cookie sheets -- the snickerdoodles spread a lot as they bake.

    The recipe is really a GREAT one if you CHANGE the 2 Tablespoons of Cinnamon to 1-2 Teaspoons. I use a good strong Vietnamese or Chinese cinnamon from Penzy’s, so typically 1 -1 1/2 teaspoons is enough. Also, the recipe does not make very many. For our family, I double the recipe and do the recipe 4 times at Christmas to share with family.

    I make a "Keto" friendly version of this cookie using the same spices but substituting the Sugar for "Monk Fruit sweetner" and almond or cocunut flour for the base, they turn out delicious and allow me to meet my lifestyle commitment but have my "Cookies" too!

    I made these once, using the recipe as written. Call it beginners' luck, but I was smitten with the results! I loved the texture and taste. I'm doing it again tomorrow, incorporating some of the reviewers' suggestions. Wish me good luck for another delicious batch.of Snickerdoodles!

    This recipe is great! I followed the recipe exactly and had close to 30 cookies the first and second time I made them. My only qualm is that I wish they were just a little bit chewier--even when I slightly undercooked them they came out very crunchy. However, there was definitely an upside to that, as they are wonderful to be dunked into tea with in the morning. Great taste, and a good solid snickerdoodle recipe.

    These came out flat for me. Good recipe otherwise, maybe a bit on the sweet side.

    My family loves this snickerdoodle it is so hard to stop eating. I changed the vegetable shorting to butter and only used 1 tablespoon of cinnamon( but wished i had used more ;) . In the future, I will press the cookies down just a bit before baking. I think this will be a family favorite for many years to come!

    I made some changes to the recipe.For example, instead of 2 tbsp of cinnamon I used 1 1/2 and 1/2 of maple cinnamon sugar. Also, instead of 1/4 tsp of salt I used 1/8 tsp of salt. I did this because I used salted butter. I also used only one rack in the middle of the oven. Instead of 10 minutes in the oven I put it in for 12 minutes.

    Good concept, great once modified. Substituted vegetable shortening with applesauce, added 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon plus 1 tsp vanilla extract to the batter, and added in some ginger and nutmeg to the cinnamon coating. Also cooked at 350 for 12 minutes--for some reason 400 for cookies just seemed off to me. With these modifications, these cookies were excellent!
