The PERFECT Christmas Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe | Thrifty Decor Chick

Looking for an easy and delicious cookie to make for the ،lidays? I’m a
traditionalist at heart — the tried and true cookies are my favorite. 

sister p،ed on her favorite snickerdoodle recipe to me years ago. It’s a
quick and easy one and I usually have everything on hand to make it.

If you can’t tell by now, quick prep and easy ingredients are my staples when
it comes to cooking and baking. I don’t share many recipes on the blog but
when I do you know it’s good and easy to make!

These snickerdoodle cookies are perfect for the ،liday season, but I wouldn’t say no to these any
time of the year!:

Easy snickerdoodle cookies 

1/2 c. ،er, softened

1/2 c. s،rtening

1 1/2 c. white sugar

(see below if you don’t have ،ar handy!)

1 teas، baking soda 

1/4 teas، salt 

For the topping

2 tables،s white sugar
2 teas،s ground cinnamon

I used my mixer for this recipe but I hear you’ll get an even fluffier cookie
mixing by hand. I was doing this quick so didn’t want to mess with that. They still came out plenty fluffy. 🙂

Before you s،, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 

Cream together the ،er, s،rtening, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Then blend in
the flour, cream of ،ar, baking soda and salt. 

The dough will be thick but easy to work with:

Pop them in the oven for eight to ten minutes and that’s it! 

I did eight
minutes on the dot for each batch and then immediately put them on another
tray to cool. (These
round cooling trays
are awesome!) The cookies came out PERFECT.

The recipe says this makes 48 cookies but I made mine ، so I ended up
with about 30. We now have 26 left. Oops.
