I rarely make a single batch of these cookies to give you an indication of how much our family enjoys them☺  I slightly adapted this recipe from another food blog (see name below) and it is the first time I've seen a Snickerdoodle recipe without cream of tartar as an ingredient.  You will taste butter and cinnamon in these sugary pillows of yum!


1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon cinnamon for rolling


In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, mixing until well combined. Mix in flour, baking powder, and salt until dough comes together. Add the milk. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. Combine dipping sugar and cinnamon in a bowl big enough to roll dough balls. Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove dough from fridge. Scoop into 1 ½” balls (I use a medium size cookie scoop). Roll in cinnamon sugar mixture and place on baking sheet. Lightly press down on dough to flatten. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove to rack to cool.
