Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

  • 1 cup (2 sticks, 226g) unsalted butter, softened but not melted
  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, (4 ounces total) room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups (352g) all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare three cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper or Silpat.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand-held mixer on the highest setting) cream together butter and sugar. (about 2-3 minutes)
  3. Add in the eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Mix until fully incorporated.
  4. With the mixer on low (or off) add in the flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt.
  5. Using a 1-tablespoon scoop, scoop out rounded balls and place close together on one of the cookie sheets.

Cinnamon Sugar

  1. Mix the 3 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon in a wide bowl. I like to use a fork but a small whisk also works.

Assembly

  1. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets.

  2. Bake 6 to 8 minutes. Carefully remove immediately from baking sheets and place on a cooling rack.
