While Snickerdoodles are often shrugged off as a simple Christmas cookie, they’re always a favorite on cookie trays. It’s amazing how a basic cookie dough rolled in cinnamon sugar and baked to perfection can be so addicting.
* If you use unsalted butter, add an additional 3/4 teaspoon salt.
**You can substitute 1 teaspoon lemon juice or white vinegar for each 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar but you really don’t want to skip this ingredient. It’s part of what makes Snickerdoodles, well, Snickerdoodles.
***If you chill the dough before baking, preheat oven about 15 mintues before baking cookies.
