Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies

When I say soft..

I mean soft..

and cinnamonie

and sugary

and {insert lovely tasty word here!}

Try this recipe- it will be your new go-to cookie recipe.

When you make this lovely soft cookie, start out by creaming the butter and sugars. Add in your eggs and sift the dry ingredients.  Slowly add to the dry’s to the wet’s and mix up. Then chill the dough in the fridge. This allows it to form into a little ball easier and bake just right.

While I was trying to have a photo shoot, some sneaky boy thought he was really clever with sticky finger..

I caught him with his hand in the cookie jar :) and then he shhhed me! It was too much cuteness… I had to grab a few pictures then give a few smooches. He’s one of three sweet reasons I bake these treats. Whether you prefer the dough over the cookie like my guy, you will be happy.  Enjoy these lovely soft snicker doodles!

  1. I tried a mixture of butter and veggie shortening and the cookies came out fine but the batter didn’t set up like it would have if I used all butter.
