  • “These are my DD’s favorite cookie.They make the house smell so wonderful!Thanks for posting it.”

  • “Wonderful! Made a rainy day brighter! DS loved helping in the kitchen. We added green sugar sprinkles to the coating for a touch of color.”

  • “Thank you for sharing this recipe! I am on a never-ending quest to send my dh homemade cookies every week~ and i believe that these cookies are another success! The only change I made was to add 1 tsp of cinnamon to the dough also (I love cinnamon!) They are simple to make, yet tasty! Thanks so much for sharing!”

  • “A classic cookie that we just love. A note of caution about the ingredients. If you use self-rising flour you need to omit the cream of tarter, baking soda and salt. Only add if using all-purpose flour. I use a dark cookie pan versus the aluminum since we love cookies with a crisp outside and chewy inside. These came out perfect baking 8 minutes.”

  • “This Snickerdoodle recipe is a keeper!The cookies turned out delicious and they were quick to make.I did substitute butter for margarine and added a touch of cinnamon to the mix.I will definitely be making these again!”

  • “This is a great recipe.These are soft and chewy and so easy to make!I tried another recipe with many more reviews and definitely preferred this one to the other.”

  • “My husband has been begging me to make Snickerdoodles for the past month! There is a recipe on Zaar that we love, but I decided to branch out and try a new one. These were fantastic!! The cookie is crisp and soft at the same time. They aren’t a real cakey cookie and they aren’t a hard biscuit type cookie… they are right in the middle, which is how we love them! You may want to spray your pan first because my cookies stuck a bit. 8 minutes was perfect for our oven. I added a tablespoon of cinnamon because my husband loves that flavor. We will be making these again! Thanks!”

  • “These are ny husband’s favorite cookies from when he was a kid, he is so happy with this recipe. They are so good that I make them for my husband and daughters at least once a week.”

  • “One of my favorite cookies.I used all purpose flour because of the baking soda, cream of tartar and salt in the recipe.I also increased the sugar to 3 tablespoons in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.I also like the fact that this recipe uses all butter instead of shortening.I also added 1 tsp vanilla.”

  • “No one had any idea what I made, but they kept eating them! I have been eating them all week long! I didn’t use self rising flour, but they still came out perfect.Thank you”

  • “This is a fantastic recipe! I had made some for a Friday holiday party but then the party was postponed to Monday due to snow. These were so good the DH and I ate them all (nearly 60!)and I had to stay up late Sunday to make more for the party. I only made one tiny change and that was to dip the tops of each cookie in sugar-in-the-raw before rolling them in the sugar/cinnamon mix. It made for a nice sparkle and crunch! Thank you so much for this great contribution!”

  • “Loved it! I guess I made the balls a little small, though, since I ended up with 6 dozen cookies (not that I’m complaining!)! Also, added a bit of cinnamon to the batter (thanks KC_cooker!) which spiced them up even more! Thanks for sharing!”

  • “Yeah! That’s the Snickerdoodles I l have always loved! Incredible cookie. I added some Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips both in the batter and on top of each cookie and they add a nice extra burst to the cookie.Thanks for posting this recipe!”

  • “These are delishhhh, as Racheal Ray would say, and easy to make !!”
