My mom would spontaneously make these Snickerdoodles every now and again...and if I remember, my brother would gobble them up! They have a nice sugar and cinnamon coating which makes them perfect compliment to a cup of coffee.

1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon

- Cream together margarine and sugar, beat in egg.
- Mix in the remaining ingredients.
- Roll dough into 1 inch balls, then roll in white sugar and cinnamon to cover.
- Place on cookie sheet, flatten with bottom of glass.
- Bake @ 350° for 12 minutes.
- Makes 48 cookies.

And just for fun, I rolled some in some decorative, green sugar rather than cinnamon for St. Patrick's Day!


  1. I'm not sure how I stumbled upon your blog, but I'm happy I did! Our 12-year-old neighbor was asking me (he's such a cutie) what snickerdoodles are like. Honestly, I've never made them. But he inspired me to give them a try and your recipe looks delicious - and so easy!
