  1. Directions

  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  3. Beat butter, granulated and brown sugars and vanilla until fluffy; scraping bowl as needed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined.

  4. Blend flour with cream of tartar, cinnamon and baking soda; add to mixer and beat on low just until a thick dough forms.

  5. Cinnamon Sugar: Blend sugar with cinnamon in a shallow bowl; set aside.

  6. Use a level 1 1/2 tbsp (#40) cookie scoop to portion and form dough into balls. Roll in cinnamon sugar to coat. Place coated cookie balls on parchment paper-lined baking sheets, spacing 3-inches (8 cm) apart. Flatten cookies slightly with the back of a measure. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar over top.

  7. Bake, in batches, for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden around the edges. Cool completely on baking sheets.


  1. • Snickerdoodles get their unique flavour from the use of cream of tartar as a leavener; it is readily available in the spice section of your supermarket.

  2. • Don't have a cookie scoop? Scoop mounded 1 tablespoon measures to portion out cookies.

  3. • If using unsalted butter, add 1/2 tsp/2 ml salt to the flour mixture.

  4. • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 1 month.
