Giant Snickerdoodles

Tasty, chewy, giant snickerdoodle recipe that tastes like it came from the bakery. 



2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, divided
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar, divided
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside. 
  3. 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.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until combined.  Do not overmix.
  5. In a shallow dish, whisk together the 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
  6. 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. 
  7. Place dough 3" apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 11-14 minutes.  Cookies are ready when they begin to crack.
