The long awaited Snickerdoodle Recipe!!

(Haha, take that Pillsbury!  A good looking final product picture!!)

Magical Snickerdoodles 
(I've written the recipe as I received it, the notes in parentheses are my own additions)
1/2 c butter, soft
1/2 c shortening
1 1/2 c white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

snickerdoodle outside
2 tbsp white sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 c sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Blend in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Mix together 2 tbsp white sugar and 2 tsp ground cinnamon.  Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls (no need to be precise, ish works.)  Roll balls in cinnamon sugar mixture and place 2 in apart on ungreased baking sheets. (I wasn't this precise and they still worked out great!).

Bake only 8 minutes (seriously, just 8 minutes.  They won't look done, but they are.  Trust me).  Remove immediately from baking sheet to baking racks to cool.

Once they've cooled (at least a little bit), enjoy!  


  1. Oh, my. I want. Like, realllllllly want. I LOVE snickerdoodles. I need to get my oven fixed posthaste so I can enjoy some of these!!!

  2. Woah! I think snickerdoodles always had peanut butter in them?! These look good...(I hate pb).
