Classic snickerdoodle cookies made with cinnamon sugar for sweetness and a bit of cream of tartar for some tartness. Soft and chewy every time!
1 C unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 C sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 3/4 C flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In the bowl of your electric mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter until light and fluffly, about 3 minutes. Slowly add sugar and beat well. Add eggs, one at a time allowing first to incorporate before adding second. Add vanilla and salt to mix. Add cream of tartar, soda and flour and mix on low until combined.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out balls of dough into cinnamon sugar and roll until completely covered. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7 minutes, until lightly brown along the edges of the cookie. Allow cookies to set on the pan for about 3-4 minutes before removing to cool completely.
