Ingredients for giant snickerdoodles

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside. 

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter for 2 minutes until very creamy.  Slowly add in the granulated sugar, then the brown sugar and let the beaters keep going for at least 2 minutes until the mixture is light and fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time and mix until combined.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until combined.  Do not overmix.

In a shallow dish, whisk together the 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.

Using a large scoop (about 3 tablespoons worth), scoop the dough, rolling it into a ball, then roll it all around in the cinnamon sugar. 

Dough ready to bake

Place dough 3″ apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 11-14 minutes.  Cookies are ready when they begin to crack.
