Snickerdoodle Tips:

Cookies can be tricky to bake sometimes and snickerdoodles seem to cause me more trouble than others. These ideas and troubleshoots have helped me.

  • Rotate- rotate the cookies halfway for more even cooking.
  • Undercook- If you overcook snickerdoodles they will be hard. It is better to take them out a minute or two before they would be ready and are still a little underdone in the middle. They will finish up on the pan.
  • Shortening and sugar-  make sure they are creamed together very well and not gritty. You want to get the most air in them you can before adding the other ingredients.
  • Room temp- all ingredients should be at room temperature.
  • Fresh ingredients- if your cream of tartar or baking soda is really old it may not work as well, causing flat cookies.
  • Cake flour- if you want them to be very fluffy you can use cake flour. I haven’t tried this but it would make them lighter.
