Soft and chewy snickerdoodles are a favorite of our family. With the cinnamon sugar coating and the soft center, these cookies will be a must on any cookie tray!
Soft and chewy snickerdoodles are a must make on any cookie tray. Christmas is coming up in a couple of months. It is never too early to start planning your teacher’s gifts, cookie trays and shopping lists!
Okay, so it is a little early, but really, these soft and chewy snickerdoodles would work great for a 4th of July picnic as well. Who doesn’t love a great cookie recipe?
The Snickerdoodle is Cora’s favorite cookie. I did not know this. I thought she was my Gooey Strawberry Cookie girl. She does like those, of course, but the snickerdoodle is her absolute favorite. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to keep everyone’s favorite listed and noted in your mind? Really, I should start writing these things down. At one point, I was Supermom and had everyone’s like and dislikes neatly organized in the file cabinet in my mind.
Of course, they all grow up and their tastes change. Apparently, I am to know this without them verbalizing it because there is somewhat of amazement when I don’t know they switched from liking taco soup to hamburger soup.
I’m just supposed to know.
Soft And Chewy Snickerdoodles
To make these cookies, you need cream of tarter. I don’t always have cream of tarter because, to be honest, I only use it for snickerdoodles. And I really don’t make snickerdoodles that much. Do yourself a favor and buy a bottle of cream of tarter and stick it in your pantry.
