These are just great cookies... they are best warm, right out of the oven.


2 tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Ground cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine; stick, softened
1 1/2 cups Sugar
2 large Eggs
2 3/4 cups All-purpose flour
2 teaspoons Cream of tartar
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt

Original recipe makes 42 Servings



Stir together 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon, and set aside.

Beat margarine and 1 1/2 cups sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add eggs, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to margarine mixture, beating until blended. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool.


I use butter instead of margarine in these.

Quite good, but I did adjust the cinnamon to sugar ratio for rolling a bit and I ended up making the cookies for about 20 mins because at 10 mins the cookies were still almost raw in the middle.

First time making and they were yummy. Instead of cream if tartar and baking soda, I used the equivalent baking powder recipe as suggested and they came out perfect. Unfortunately didn't make enough as they done within a day.

My husband reviewed this the best. He believes this snicker doodle recipe is what unicorn meat would probably taste like.

Exactly like I remember them!

Rave reviews from all who tried one. I did modify slightly. Added a teaspoon of sour cream. And cooked for 15 min.

We really enjoyed these tasty biscuits. I had planned to freeze some for later but there wasn't enough left! My only adjustment was to replace the baking soda and cream of tartar with 3 teaspoons of baking powder (equivalent). They were nicely crunchy on the outside but still just a little soft on the inside - perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

They had too much flour and were super hard they weren't good at all.
