Classic Snickerdoodles

Added by: on Jan 19th, 2012
These Snickerdoodles are sweet and crispy from the rolled sugar with a warm spice from the cinnamon. They're slightly crispy on the edges with a soft chewy center (the way every good cookie should be). There is something about that warmth and sweetness that brings me back to being a kid. .. more >

Classic Snickerdoodles


Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

Classic Snickerdoodles


In a large bowl, mix the sorghum flour, brown rice flour, white rice flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar with a whisk.

Classic Snickerdoodles


Cream the butter and sugar in a mixer or with a hand mixer until light and fluffy.

Classic Snickerdoodles


Add the eggs one at a time and mix until they're fully incorporated.

Classic Snickerdoodles


Slowly add the flour mixture until complete incorporated. Mix until dough comes together slightly.

Classic Snickerdoodles


Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, form ball about 1-1 1/2 inches in diameter.

Classic Snickerdoodles


In a wide bowl, mix together the sugar and the cinnamon. Roll the dough so it's completely coated in cinnamon and sugar.

I do this process for the entire batch of dough before I start baking. It gets the messy part of the Snickerdoodles out of the way so you don't need to be constantly washing your hands from the dough. Also, I keep the plate of all the dough in the fridge while I bake up the other batches just to make sure it doesn't get too warm from the heat of the oven in the kitchen.

Classic Snickerdoodles


Bake for 11 minutes, turning half way, or until the edges are slightly golden browned.


Allow to cool for a minute on the tray and transfer to a rack to complete cooling.

Cooks' note:
Snickerdoodles, like most sugar cookies, taste good when they're fresh out of the oven, but even better once they've cooled off. They stay well great. If possible, I actually think they taste the best the second or third day. They were all devoured after only 3 days in my house, but kept in an airtight container they stayed great. I'd say they had at least another 2-3 days in them if not more. If you don't want the whole recipe at once, with these I'd bake them all up then freeze them right after they cool and they should stay fresh a few months.

These Biscoff Snickerdoodles are almost like my tried and true Snickerdoodles recipe, but with a much deeper, richer flavor, thanks to that distinct gingerbread, caramel-like flavor of the Biscoff Spread. Whether you’re a culinary expert or novice baker, these are quick to mix up and get in the oven. Too hot to turn on your oven? Try these Biscoff No-Bake Cookies.
