Buttery and sweet with a hint of spice, these favorite cinnamon-sugar cookies, otherwise known as "snickerdoodles," are right for any occasion.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place granulated sugar and butter in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 3 minutes). Add corn syrup, vanilla, and egg; beat 3 minutes or until well blended.

Step 2

Lightly spoon cake flour and all-purpose flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; stir until just combined. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill 1 hour.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 4

Combine turbinado sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Shape dough into 48 balls, about 1 teaspoon each. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 12 minutes or until golden on bottom. Cool on wire racks.

Chef's Notes

If you prefer a slightly chewier cookie, reduce baking time to 10 minutes. A sprinkling of large-grained turbinado sugar makes a pretty presentation to attract bake sale buyers.

These cookies were outstanding. I have made them three times and the second time did not like the consistency; since then I bought a food scale and I think that really helps getting the right amount of flour so that it won't be hit or miss. Excellent cookies, got rave reviews!

My husband LOVES these cookies so much I make them for him as a gift on special occasions! They are awesome, though you definately need more cinnamon & sugar for rolling. Best ever "simple" cookie!

Delicious cookie!! Reminded me of a snickerdoodle. I made about 45 cookies and baked them for 9 minutes and they turned out perfect. Will definitely make them again!
