The BEST Soft Snickerdoodles Recipe
Snickerdoodles have been one of my favorite cookies for as long as I can remember. They remind me of my childhood, and every time I make them, I hope that my children will grow up and remember them too.
I’ve tried several different Snickerdoodle recipes over the years, and this one is hands down the best, and my favorite. It’s crunchy on the outside, and perfectly soft and chewy on the inside.
And the smell throughout the house when you make them? The BEST ever. I love when my kids walk through the door after school, and they know exactly what I have waiting for them!
Easy cookies to make and bake!
They are so easy to put together, and the chilled dough and cookie sheet make a huge difference in how they turn out. They’re so soft, the perfect texture, and the taste is unbelievable. They last about 5.2 seconds at my house–I literally cannot make them fast enough! I love wrapping them up and dropping them off to friends or neighbors as a thinking of you or thank you gift.
I like to use a lot of cinnamon & sugar on the outside, and I’m definitely not shy when I’m rolling them. I just love the extra crunch it gives the cookie, and who can resist one of the best combinations ever?
Really, I think I could make these every single day and be happy. I know my kids and husband would be!
