With a crisp outside and a soft and chewy middle, these snickerdoodles are one of our favorites! This easy recipe is made without shortening for a deliciously buttery flavor.
One thing that makes snickerdoodles unique is the addition of cream of tartar. Cream of tartar is actually a byproduct of wine production and adds a subtle tart flavor to these delicious cookies! You can find it online at Amazon or in the baking or spice aisle of most grocery stores.
If you’ve never had snickerdoodles, you’re going to want to add them to your must bake list! They taste like buttery cinnamon toast in a cookie form! Perfect for any time of year!
