How to Make Snickerdoodles


  • 1Cream together the butter and shortening add the 1 1/2 cups of sugar continue to mix. Add the eggs one at a time, beating with mixer in between.

    Slowly add the flour 1/2 cup at a time.
  • 2Chill the dough in the refrigerator and this is a necessary step. About 2 hours.
  • 3Once the dough is finished getting cold and firm. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out exact sizes.
  • 4I use the 2 ounce scoop and level it off each time.

    I usually scoop all the cookies out onto a piece of plastic wrap before starting to roll into the sugar mixture.
  • 5Combine the last 2 ingredients sugar and cinnamon. Put into a gallon baggie and drop about 4 balls at a time shake them around a little then put directly onto the cookie sheet. I pat them down just a little as you can see in the photo.

    It is not recommended to grease the cookie sheet.
  • 6Choose a cookie sheet with the air flow. Cover it with aluminum foil. Be sure to put the shiny side down to reflect the heat from the cookie bottom and burning.
  • 7Place in preheated oven to 400 degrees. Bake for about 12 minutes. Every oven is different.
