Why I Love This Recipe

I'll include the variation of plain old snickerdoodles as well, since this is my oldest & most often-made snickerdoodle.

The chocolate snickerdoodles are a good basic chocolate cookie. Not too sweet or rich. Great for kids parties.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2c sugar
1/2 c butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c all purpose flour
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt


Oven at 400 degrees

1. Cream butter & sugars

2. Add vanilla & eggs. Beat well.

3. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda & salt. Mix well.

4. Shape into 1” balls. Press down center slightly.

5. Bake 6-9 minutes.

Yields about 5 dozen cookies


For traditional cinnamon version,

- eliminate cocoa

- use 2 3/4 c flour

Combine: 2 T sugar & 2 t cinnamon (or use pre-bought cinnamon sugar). Roll balls in cinnamon sugar.

Cook 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.


Fun variation: roll the chocolate ones in cinnamon sugar as well for a "mayan chocolate" cookie ;)
