Snickerdoodles

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (I used Kerrygold)
1 cup granulated sugar + 1 tablespoon, divided use
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/4 cup whole milk, or half-n-half, or coconut milk
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, 1 cup sugar and vanilla until creamy - about 1 minute. Beat in egg and milk until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop out dough onto cookie sheets. In a small bowl, stir together remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon until well combined. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on top of cookies. Bake 8 minutes or until light golden brown and set. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes about 20 cookies

  10. Your family wasn't upset that you didnt' bring a dessert to the party? I know my family is upset when I don't bring one of your desserts to a party!

    I envy your weather! Send some of that spring up this way - wind and all!

    The snickerdoodles look delcious and I am really crazy about the idea of coconut milk in them!

  15. So many special days to celebrate Emily.Many years ago I made some snickerdoodles but the recipe went horribly wrong. It is nice to have a reliable recipe as found here on Sugar Plum.

  20. Thanks everyone!

    Lisa, that's crazy! I'm glad you like the picture. :)

    Helena, I think she does.. but maybe not bright red?

    Ministrywife, I'm so happy you liked the cupcakes! That makes me very happy. Thank you for reading! You should really bake these snickerdoodles.

    Rachel, I will send some spring your way. I actually used coconut milk and loved it!

    Malebaker, I've heard of doing that, but never have tried. I'll have to check out your recipe. I remember Karen from Familystylefood had a spiced chocolate snickerdoodle she made a while back.

  22. I think the best thing about snickerdoodles is that you always have everything you need to make them in the cupboard. Even when you can't make any other dessert, you can make snickerdoodles.
