Fat, Fluffy Snickerdoodles

I love snickerdoodles.  Who am I kidding, I love cookies!  But these had me at "fat, fluffy", kinda like me.  :)

Fat, Fluffy Snickerdoodles
1/2 c butter, room temperature
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 c all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs milk
1/4 c sugar + 1 tbs cinnamon for dipping

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth.  Add egg and vanilla, mixing well until combined, about 2 minutes.  Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Mix until dough comes together.  Add in milk.  If dough is still crumbly, add milk 1 tbs at a time until it comes together.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, combine remaining sugar and cinnamon.  Remove dough from fridge and roll into big 1 1/2" balls.  Dip in cinnamon sugar mixture and place on baking sheet.  Lightly press down on dough to flatten it.  Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes.
  • Delicious!
