  • 1/4 cup - butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup - shortening
  • 3/4 cup - white Sugar
  • 1 - Egg
  • 1 tsp - vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cups and 1 tbsp - all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp - Cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp - baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp - salt
  • 2 to 3 tbsp - white Sugar
  • 2 tsp - ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp - ground Cardamom powder (or more if you like Cardamom)
  • How to Make Snickerdoodle Cookies:

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
    2. Cream together butter, shortening, sugar, egg and vanilla.
    3. In a separate bowl, blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt.
    4. Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ones and blend well.
    5. Make sure you don't over-mix them. The result will be a slightly sticky dough.
    6. Mix the cinnamon and cardamom (if using) along with sugar and spread it on a plate.
    7. Shape dough into balls. Since the dough is a little sticky, you can dust your hands with the sugar and spice mixture to help shape the rounds.
    8. Once shaped, roll the balls of dough in the sugar and spice mixture until they are well coated on all sides.
    9. Make sure to place these balls at least 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet (or use parchment paper).
    10. They spread while baking.
    11. Remove them after 5-6 minutes when they are crisp on the surface and break well but slightly soft on the inside.
