These are wonderful cookies. I use unsalted butter. I've made them several times and they always get compliments!

Followed the recipe ingredients exactly, but rolled the dough around small chocolate caramels. I used a # 60 cookie scoop, then baked them at 350° for 11-12 minutes, which was absolutely perfect in my oven. The texture is just right-crunchy on the outside and a little soft inside and the chocolate caramel surprise! I will definitely use this recipe again!

I followed to the "T", I found them to be crunchy so I undercooked to get a softer chew. I had one the next morning to test and even the undercooked were crunchy. So sad, I hate crunchy cookies, the taste was there though.

DELICIOUS !!!!!!

Easy, fun, and great tasting!

This is a wonderful recipe. I halved it and it made about 24 cookies. If I had known the cookies would be so good, I'd have made the full recipe!

These cookies were big, spicy and yummy. If you like giant cookies, I suggest pressing each ball down slightly with the heel of your palm. I also recommend substituting the cinnamon with apple pie spice. It gives the cookies a nice, warm flavor. So happy to have found another great recipe from your site. Keep up the good work!

These came out sticky, I couldn't even roll them in a ball. I wasn't sure what to do. Someone said to add a bit more flour and when I did they tasted nothing like other recipes that I have made in the past. I think something needs to be checked on the ingredients because these are inaccurate.

When they say Land O Lake softened butter, do you use salted or unsalted butter?

Rating

I found them to be quite soft and very easy to make in a hurry.

I always use this reciope for my snickerdoodles.They are soft and chewy.I have brought them to several cookie exchanges and they always go fast..

Everyone in my family loved these! They were all sorry when they were gone. Need to double the recipe next time.

Rating

these are like nasty little fluffy bland sugar pancakes! It looks NOTHING like the picture & I followed recipe EXACTLY! YUCK! What a waste ... Snicker doodles are great cookies, but these sweet nasty sponge cakes are not good.

Rating

Great cookie. Instead of combining all ingredients and mixing I prefer creaming the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla together and mixing the dry ingredients together then additng the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture in portions. Additionally, the dough is easier to work with if you chill it for an hour before forming the cookie balls to roll into the sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Excellent snickerdoodles!

These are nothing like the snickerdoodles I was looking for (the ones you find in the mall)...they were thick and cake-like, not buttery, thin and chewy. FAIL!
