Classic Soft Snickerdoodles

After a summer’s worth of 6 Week Challenge recipes, it’s time for a good, old-fashioned favorite. These soft classic snickerdoodles are perfect – the dough is tangy, the cinnamon sugar balances it nicely, and they’re gorgeously soft.

This recipe comes from my favorite — the 1970 Betty Crocker Cookbook. I’ve tried others, but I come back to this one every time. It’s easy, requires no chilling, and produces a lovely cookie.

The big secret to good cookies, in my opinion, is to underbake. I always take the cookies out 1-2 minutes before they’re completely done, then leave them on the cookie sheet to develop for another few minutes. This way, they never come out hard or crispy – perfect every time!
