All right. Here they are. The world famous (infamous?) cookies… they’ve been called snickerdoodles, sugar cookies and even the “crack” cookies. These are the cookies that people eat so many of they literally make themselves sick. We take no responsibility for stomach aches. If you can’t control yourself, don’t make them!

These cookies have literally been passed down from generation to generation… with no actual instructions, just the ingredient list, the temperature and cooking time. We’ve included some helpful tips to get the softest, most addicting cookies possible!


1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cup white flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Bring the butter and eggs to room temperature
Mix the butter and sugar together until smooth
Add the eggs and vanilla, mix until smooth
Add in the baking soda and baking powder, mixing until smooth
Mix in the flour 1 cup at a time

Chill the dough in the fridge for at least an hour, overnight is preferable

Roll dough into balls
Roll the balls in the cinnamon and sugar mixture and place on baking sheet

Bake at 375 F for 10 minutes

Let them cook for a couple minutes on racks and then pop them in plastic bags or containers (this will keep them nice and soft)
