Snickerdoodles

snickerdoodles-main

Snickerdoodles are such a classic cookie, yet up until this point they have honestly been the bane of my existence. I can master croissants, danish, eclairs, and all sorts of complicated bread recipes, but hand me a snickerdoodle recipe and they will undoubtedly spread into a massive, flat, crunchy 14×16-inch cookie. I am not sure where the problem lies, but for some reason this one cookie has given me nothing but headaches. I’m glad that you all like them so much and that they ended up in the top 10 cookies mentioned during the cookbook giveaway, because it gave me an excuse to tackle them yet again with a new recipe. I am happy to report that I have finally experienced successful snickerdoodles! Wonderful round, soft, cinnamon-sugar goodness that taste every ounce as good as they look.

I don’t remember how I stumbled upon this recipe for soft snickerdoodle cookies, but I had it saved for quite some time and was very excited to finally give it a try. The recipe received hundreds of raving reviews claiming that it was the first actual soft snickerdoodle recipe that many had ever tried. I was sold immediately given all of my problems with the spreading crunchy catastrophes. The recipe is incredibly simple and the only real difference that I could discern between this recipe and the others I have tried is that it instructs you to chill both the dough and the cookie sheets before baking. I surmise that this drastically cuts down on the spreading, and resulted in one absolutely elated Brown Eyed Baker. I’m so happy to have a great snickerdoodle recipe that I can bust out during the holidays!

After I took these out of the oven (and stole two that “broke”… “accidentally”), I Tweeted about how great the warm snickerdoodles were fresh from the oven. Elly of Elly Says Opa! replied by saying that I should make snickerdoodle ice cream sandwiches once the cookies cooled. Elly – you have won Genius of the Day award. These were absolutely, 100% incredible. If you have some vanilla ice cream stashed away in the freezer, you definitely need to throw one of these together! Go from cookie to full-fledged dessert in less than a minute.

    Anyway, is there any other ingredient I could substitute it with?

    Reply

  30. Michelle on August 20, 2009 at 3:57 pm

    Hi Disha – If you don’t have cream of tartar, you would substitute baking powder for both the baking soda and cream of tartar.

    For this recipe, use 4 teaspoons baking powder and omit BOTH the baking soda and cream of tartar.

    (For future reference, the substituting formula is 1 teaspoon of baking soda for every 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar.)

    How funny, the snickerdoodles that I bake always come out way too puffy! They don’t spread at all, so I spread them myself a little bit before baking them. I do use half butter and half shortening though. But this ones do look really good :)! I may try them in the future.

    I’m an Australian, where Snickerdoodles are virtually unknown. In fact, before I became something of an avid baker myself, I, nor anyone I knew, had ever heard of them. All I’ve ever really known is that they’re dipped in cinnamon sugar, which always had me intrigued, as I love anything with cinnamon sugar.

    Anyway, I decided to make some today, after a small batch of Ginger nuts got me in the mood. I used this recipe, and good god was I delighted. This recipe results in pure happiness, concentrated into a cookie. Thank you very much for the recipe, and if anyone’s on the fence about making them; do it! There’s no possible room for disappointment.

    I always made a tone of these during the holidays they are addictive. Their also pretty flexible working with cream icings as sandwich cookies & substituting flavors with different extracts (minus cinnamon) but I was kinda curious how these cookies ever got their name of snickerdoodles if there was not one snickers in it? lol :o)

  52. Linda on October 15, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Baking powder is approximately 2/3 baking soda and 1/3 cream of tar tar along with other little bits in it that make it baking powder. So, replacing the cream of tartar and baking soda with baking powder should work just fine

    Reply

  53. Erin on November 21, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    The first time I made these, I accidentally used baking powder instead of baking soda. I was making 4 different kinds of cookies for a holiday bake off thing at work and got confused.

    The cookies turned out amazing, however they didn’t flatten; they kind of poofed. So they were like mini snickerdoodles, but I found that the smaller size increased the vanilla and butter flavor so each cookie was an intense snickerdoodle experience.

    Since then, I’ve tried it with the original baking soda, and haven’t liked them as much, so now I use whole wheat flower and baking powder and they’re awesome.

    Thanks for the best snickerdoodle recipe ever!

It turned into a huge, snickerdoodle pie! My roommates were elated, of course, because it still tasted like a snickerdoodle, but it just wasn’t the same for the little perfectionist baker inside.

    Next time, I’m going to try your recipe!

    This is the BEST recipe for snickerdoodles. My husband told me to throw out any other recipes I have, “this is the one” (when he says quit trying to find something better and get rid of any other recipes, that is a high compliment:). I’ve taken them to multiple gatherings and every time someone asks for the recipe. I follow the recipe step by step, including chilling the dough and pans between batches. These cookies turn out just like the pics show, and taste delicous, they are soft too! Thanks for posting! Getting ready to whip up a batch for a dinner party tomorrow, I’m in charge of dessert:)

    Well, I just made snickerdoodles with another recipe from a trusted cookbook, but my cookies came out dome shaped. I suppose this is not bad, but I prefer them to be flat like yours — I have your original problem in reverse. I noticed the only difference between the recipe I used and this one is more flour and the addition of salt. I thought I’d ask a more experience baker, do you think perhaps that’s what did it?

      Cream of tartar functions a bit like baking soda and baking powder, and is a very common ingredient in snickerdoodle cookies. You can usually find it in the baking aisle, with the other herbs and spices – where you would find the cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.

  85. Jessa on February 10, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    These were delicious! My only problem is that sticking the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes (actually longer) still resulted in super stick dough that sucked to roll into balls. Freezing it for 30 minutes helped for the first few balls on the pan until they thawed out.

    Still, the end result was amazing and now I’m having to guard the cookie jar so my husband doesn’t eat them all. :)

The flavor was there, but I disliked how thin these cookies were. Going back to my old snickerdoodles recipe. I should have paid more attention to the photos. I like my snickerdoodles puffy – soft in middle and crispy on the edges.

    I tried these and they are delicious! I stuck them in my freezer and just heated one up when I needed it. These will be made again:)

    Mine came out puffy then flatten greatly when cooled. Any suggestions?

      Hi Grace, Well, this sounds like most snickerdoodles. These cookies, as you can tell from the pictures, are fairly thin. They should still be chewy though (not crunchy).

    Wow, these cookies are amazing! I’ve never ever heard of or eaten a snickerdoodle before, but I’m pretty sure I’m not gonna try any other snickerdoodle recipe except for this one :D

    Your blog is my new “go to” place for recipes. After trying several of your recipes I now trust that whatever I choose to make from browneyedbaker will be fantastic! Loved the snickerdoodles, this recipe is fantastic. Since the recipe has so much emphasis on keeping everything cool, I rolled and dipped the dough balls and placed them in a tupperware bowl set over another bowl with ice cubes/water. This helped to keep them cool until I was ready to remove the baking sheets from the fridge.

      Kathy I read your comment before trying these and used your bowl over ice trick. Cookies were wonderful. Great recipe and your tip was helpful as well.

    I’ve actually never had a problem with Snickerdoodles, and I’m using The Bake Sale Cookbook.
    The recipe I use states that you need to use either all margarine, or use half margarine and half butter. I do the half and half thing, and everyone loves my cookies.

    Just let these cookies cool but it was hard to wait. They are perfect! I took your advice and kept everything cold before baking. They are so good! Can’t wait to give them out to my daughter’s softball team. Thank you. So far ALL of your recipes have been flawless. You are now my Go TO Girl for baking.

      Hi Danielle, Although I haven’t done it, I think you could halve this recipe without a problem. Enjoy!

    Hi Danielle,
    I actually have halved this recipe many times and (like Michelle expected) they come out exactly like they do when I’ve made the whole recipe!
