Snickerdoodle cookies are cinnamon flavoured butter cookies that just melts in your mouth.As I have told already mittu is fond of homemade cookies so I wait for a chance to bake cakes and cookies.Few days back I got my mixing bowls that hubby ordered and I was waiting to use them, I have a craze for using new things immediately you see :) So yesterday after putting the baby to nap baked these cookies, the whole house was filled with the buttery cinnamon aroma of these cookies.All of us loved the cookies and already there is demand to make these again and I am waiting for a chance.:)

My Notes:

  • The cookies spread out so while baking so leave enough space between each cookie.
  • I used 1 and 1/2 cups of flour, I used my 1/3 cup and added little more flour to make it 1/2 cup as I had butter in my 1/2 measuring cup
  • My dough was slightly wet and moist so I refrigerated to make it stiff.But this step is optional, if the dough is stiff then start baking them right away.
  • First I used 1 tbsp measuring spoon to scoop out the dough and the cookies are quite big so for the next batch(what you see in the pic)I took just half of 1 tbsp and the size was perfect.
  • You can even refrigerate the dough overnight and bake the cookies next day.In that case keep the dough outside for a while then proceed.
  • I added only 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder as I wanted the flavour to be mild though the orginal recipe calls for 1 tsp of it.
  • I followed the orginal recipe as such exact for few tweaks in the measure.So  am not sure of egg substitutes in this recipe.
  • Do not be tempted to overbake just 10-12mins will be just fine.IT will be soft when taken out of the oven after cooling it is crisp at the edges and slightly soft inside thats how they are to be.

  1. Hello Sharmi, Cookies look so inviting. Can you please tell the make of Electric beater?


  2. Can u give measurements in gms...and can we bake de same in cooker

  3. Can u pls tell measurements in grams and whether we can bake de same in cooker....if yes then let us know de procedure of baking this cookie in a cooker.

    1. I havent tried my hands in baking using pressure cooker....Will sure update the recipe in gms

  4. Sharmi, new, different, cute cookies... pictures are tempting and so perfect in showing the texture. We don't eat egg, is there any way make this without egg and substitute with something else ... curd/oil/more butter?

    1. No havent tried any other variations

    2. hank you Sharmi, Oops... some baking items you used curd as substitute for egg, so let me try as trial and let you know the result.

  5. Hi Sharmi,
    I tried most of our recipes and all were tasty. I have only one difficulty in executing this. What is that 1 cup measurement? Is it 200ml? It will be useful for everybody if u denote that measurement in all the post.

    1. Each ingredient in 1 cup measures differently...Will sure update the recipe next time I make it because I need to measure the ingredients in weighing scale

  6. Awesome ! Wonder how you get time to bake with just a new addition to the family! ��
