Apple Butter Snickerdoodles
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar + 1/3 cup, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 T. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon + 1 t., divided
  1. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and 1 1/4 cups sugar in a mixer until fluffy. Mix in eggs, vanilla, 1/2 t. cinnamon, and apple butter.
  3. Beat just until mixed. Add in flour mixture and mix until just blended together. Chill your dough at least 4 hours.
  4. This dough MUST be cold before baking. Because of all the butter and apple butter, the cookies will spread quite a bit if you skip the chilling!
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 1 t. cinnamon and 1/3 cup sugar in a small bowl.
  6. Scoop balls of cookie dough and roll them in the cinnamon sugar.
  7. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake cookies for 11-12 minutes for slightly underdone, 13-14 minutes for fully done. Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheets.
