The Best Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies Ever

The perfect snickerdoodle cookie doesn’t exist? We beg to differ.

This recipe works for however you like your snickerdoodles. Like them thin and crunchy? Sure, go ahead and flatten them out a little bit. Prefer them soft and gooey in the center? Why not, feel free to leave them in little balls!

However you like your cookies, one thing is for sure: this recipe is easy, fast, and has the most cinnamon sugar per bite capita.

Why? Because we believe in double dipping. No, not the gross kind of double dipping. The secret to fabulous snickerdoodles is in the double coating of cinnamon and sugar.

Not only does it create a lovely browned color on the exterior of the cookie, it also makes a nice crunchy shell to bite into. Mmmmm, cronch cronch.

 

 

Now, if you’d like your cookies to be uniform in size, use a Cookie Scoop! This gadget comes in handy when it comes to making confectionaries. But most importantly, it comes in handy to make cookies that are perfectly sized.

We use the scoop to measure, then roll the cookies using our hands into little balls. Dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture, then dip again to make sure it’s super duper coated in that cinnamon-y goodness.

Once everything has baked up to your liking, move them to the cooling rack using a mini-flex spatula! Directly into your mouth if you’re adventurous like that too. They’re the perfect size for cookie moving.

Cheers to the best snickerdoodle cookies out there! Happy eating!
