How To Make snickerdoodles

  • 2
    Beat in the sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Beat until thoroughly combined.

    Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill the dough for 1 hour.

    Preheat oven to 375°. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  • 6
    Remove the dough from the refrigerator and shape the dough into 1 inch balls.
  • 7
    Roll the dough balls in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • 8
    Place balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 9
    Bake at 375° for 10-11 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
