I am so excited, I have finally found the perfect Snickerdoodle recipe! I've been searching and searching and every recipe I've tried so far has come up short. The cookies are either too flat or too sweet or too crunchy. Well, I finally found the recipe I've been looking for on Allrecipes.com. There are several recipes there but this one wins the prize!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs, room temperature
2-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tarter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 TB white sugar and 2 tsp ground cinnamon, mixed together
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.
In a smaller bowl whisk together flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt. And to the creamed mixture and beat well.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, roll dough into 1" balls. Roll balls into cinnamon sugar mixture and place on ungreased cookie sheet about 3" apart. Bake for 8-10 min. Remove from oven and let cool about a minute before removing to cooling rack.
