Soft & Chewy Snickerdoodles

Adapted from Martha Stewart’s Cookies. The recipe says it makes about 1-1/2 dozen, but I ended up with closer to 3 dozen smaller cookies.


  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs


  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and whisk together well.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and 1-1/2 cups sugar for about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition. Reduce speed to low and gradually add in the dry ingredients. Continue mixing until just combined.
