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 McCormick Vanilla Extract
  • 2 3/4 cups (352g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons McCormick Ground Cinnamon

Cinnamon Marshmallow Frosting

  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 7 ounces marshmallow fluff
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Ground Cinnamon

Caramel Topping (1 tablespoon per cookie sandwich)


    Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

    • Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare three cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper or Silpat.
    • 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).
    • Add in the eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Mix until fully incorporated.
    • With the mixer on low (or off) add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then add in the lemon juice. Mix until just combined.
    • Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, scoop out the dough and form into rounded balls with your hands, then press down slightly to form a disc shape.

    Cinnamon Sugar

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


    • Roll the dough in mixture. Place 2 cookies at least a few inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
    • Bake 14-16 minutes. Cookies should puff up a bit and then fall slightly after cooling.

    Cinnamon Marshmallow Frosting

    • Add confectioners sugar, cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, and cinnamon to a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on medium speed for about 3 minutes, or until the frosting is smooth and creamy. (It will start out very thick, continue mixing until it is creamy.)
    • Take one large cookie and place about 1/4 cup of frosting. Smooth with an offset spatula.
    • Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce.
    • Place a cookie on top and press down slightly. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients to make 3 total sandwich cookies. (You may have one remaining individual cookie.)
