Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Recipe: Snickerdoodle Cookies


It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is SNICKERDOODLE COOKIES!

A lot of people have recipes for Snickerdoodle Cookies but this is my version. One of the reasons I love it is because it makes so many wonderful cookies. If you need cookies for a school bake sale, this is the recipe for you! No, these won’t be those, “I forgot to tell you, Mom, but I need a million cookies tomorrow” cookies. But they’re so yummy and worth the effort.   

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

DAY TWO:  Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Check oven racks.  Wash hands.  Roll pieces of dough into balls about the size of small walnuts.  Balls of dough should be about the same size.  Roll balls in sugar/cinnamon mixture in small bowl.  Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 400 degrees, 8-10 minutes.  Cookies will be soft.

  1. Interesting that it takes two days to prepare these. I am tempted to try them, but I would need to cut down the size, lol. Thank you for the recipe!
