I came up with this recipe by combining 3 family favorite cookie recipes into one delicious amazing cookie. It's a soft cookie, with a cake like texture. The taste is unique and when I sell them at bake sales they sell out immediately!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These cookies are soft on the inside and a slight crunch on the outside. Just the way I like em. The cinnamon sugar on top tops these off perfectly! These go perfectly with a lovely cup of afternoon tea. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cakerdoodle cookies

Step-by-Step

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and 2 cups of sugar until smooth. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, then add the vanilla.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk until well blended.
