Of all the desserts classified as cookies, Snickerdoodles are one of my absolute favorites. For some reason, I have never actually baked Snickerdoodle cookies. That is, I have never baked any homemade Snickerdoodles, totally from scratch. I have bought the ones that are in a plastic tub (some of which are even already pre-formed individual portions of dough). You may have purchased these and they can be stored in the freezer. Now, mind you, those are actually pretty good. At least, the ones I have had experience with have been good.
For the past week or so, I have been guiltily thinking about baking up a batch of Snickerdoodle cookies. I was in charge of two of my granddaughters this week. Snickerdoodles are Sophie's favorite cookie as well. When I mentioned that I was planning to bake some Snickerdoodles my Sophie wanted to assist in the kitchen. I strive to always welcome and encourage little helpers to learn their way around in the kitchen, so we got started right away.
We used this recipe from Farberware's baking site and, I kid you not, these are some of the best cookies I have ever made. Sophie agrees they are the best she has ever made too! This is how they look.

Some Snickerdoodles are really crunchy and hard, but NOT these. The cookies from this recipe are crisp enough so that they do not fall apart when you touch them, but they are incredibly soft and chewy and they fairly melt in your mouth. They are sumptuously tender and full of buttery, sugary cinnamon flavor. They are not for those of you who are faint of heart or who are afraid of butter because, yes, they do contain real honest-to-goodness butter. An entire cup, as a matter of fact!

For your convenience, I have copied the recipe here:
I provided the link to the recipe near the beginning of this post and I will give it to you again here! There are lots of other recipes on the site!
The recipe does come with a preface that it is almost impossible to eat just one and I won't lie about it, I did not eat only one. These things are seriously addictive! Fortunately, I shared the batch I made with family and friends!
Blogger's Note: I used King Arthur Flour in baking these cookies. I have had the best results when I use it and if it ain't broke, I am not going to try and fix it! I am not making an endorsement but it certainly works for me.
