Healthy after school snacks -Snickerdoodles

Jul 20, 2020

You can’t go wrong with a good ol’ fashion snickerdoodle! They travel well, and no kid says no to a Snickerdoodle! This recipe comes from my mom; who raised us on love and Snickerdoodles. The smell of them baking still sparks favorite childhood memories and I’m excited to tuck a few into my own son’s lunchbox soon.


  1. 1 cup butter, room temperature
  2. 1 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 3 cup flour
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 cup sugar
  9. 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • In a mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla, mix until combined. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients; flour, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture, mixing well between each addition.
  • The dough should not be sticky and should not be crumbly. If it is sticky, mix in flour one tablespoon at a time until it becomes not sticky. If the mixture is crumbly, mix in water one teaspoon at a time until the dough holds together.
  • Mix cinnamon and sugar together and place on a plate. Measure dough with a 1/4 cup measure and roll into balls. Roll each ball to coat well in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until the center is just set.
  • Let cool 2 minutes, then remove and cool on a wire rack
