It was Valentine’s Day so I decided to make my boyfriend a batch of his favorite cookies…. these snickerdoodle cookies!
My top 3 favorite type of cookies are;
1. Oatmeal Raisin
2. Chocolate Walnut
3. White Chocolate Macadamia
I’m starting to like snickerdoodle cookies a lot more now… I think I’m going to make these more often!
I had a heart shaped cutter so this was perfectly themed for the holiday!
Chewy Heart-Shaped Snickerdoodle Cookies
Chewy and soft snickerdoodle cookies. A perfect treat for those cinnamon lovers!
- 1 stick butter 1/2 cup melted
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup + 6 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Cinnamon Sugar Mix: 1/4 cup sugar + 4 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla extract.
In a separate medium bowl, mix together the flour, cream of tartar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.
Let the dough chill in the fridge for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup sugar and 4 teaspoons cinnamon.
Prepare a clean surface and sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
Remove the dough from fridge and press down (about 1 inch thick) on the clean surface.
Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar on top of the cookie dough and cut into shapes using your cookie cutter.
Bake for 9-11 minutes. DO NOT overbake them. When they’re out the oven, they will still still be soft – they will harden as they cool. Trust!
Leave cookies on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack.
They are best enjoyed within 2 days!
