Best Snickerdoodles Ever! (Seriously)

The origin of the crazy name is unclear, but a Snickerdoodle is basically just a soft, chewy, sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar. Fabulous and easy to make, the only problem I have with these cookies is that I simply cannot resist them!      Why Cream of Tartar? Together with the baking soda, it acts as a leavener.   Why do you let the dough rest? Letting the dough rest in the refrigerator makes it easier to work with, stops the cookies from spreading too quickly, and gives them better texture and flavor. Work with one pan of cookies at a time, refrigerating the rest of the dough in-between. I’ve tried refrigerating the dough from a half hour to overnight, and have found that it’s easiest to work with after one full hour in the fridge.   Cool Tools Medium Cookie Scoop Parchment Sheets Salter Scale Offset Spatula   Best Snickerdoodles Ever 2013-08-05 14:15:05 Yields 30 Soft and chewy sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar.
