How to Make Snickerdoodle Cookies

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