Looking for a different cookie, that has a unique taste, the cinnamon, and cream of tartar add a special flavor to these crackly surfaced cookies. One of my earliest memories was making snickerdoodles when I was a girl scout. Since then I have made these cookies for cookie exchanges, and when I wanted something sweet, and tangy. If you haven’t tried these cookies before, you are missing out. These cookies are rolled in cinnamon and sugar to give them a wonderful crunchy crust.
Do you need to make cookies, but you don’t have any chocolate chips, peanut butter, or oatmeal? I bet you have what you need on hand to make snickerdoodle cookies. These are simple cookies to make, and you don’t need a lot of exotic ingredients to put together this classic cookie. Snickerdoodles are basically a sugar cookie that is rolled in sugar and cinnamon. By rolling the cookie into the mixture of cinnamon and sugar, you make a crispy coating with the perfect amount of spice.
