An afternoon at the Painted Hills, followed by a batch of Homemade Snicker Doodle Cookies  that you must try! They are So YUMMY!

Old-fashioned cinnamon cookies with a whimsical name.

Prep Time: 8 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar


In a shallow bowl, combine 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Cream shortening; gradually add 1 1/2 cups sugar, beating well. Add eggs; beat well. Stir in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, soda, salt and cream of tartar. Add sifted ingredients to creamed mixture; stir until well blended. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place snickerdoodles 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets.

Bake snickerdoodles at 400° for 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Makes about 4 dozen snickerdoodles.

    soothes me just to look at these pictures. Funny, AmberLeigh JUST made snickerdoodles. I’ve been making homemade mustard and soft pretzels and yogurt in a crock pot. Choc cake w/ coffee and italian frosting cupcakes. How DO I do it without an oven?? We are buying an oven off clist anyday now, hubby says….

    I too like the photos. Snickerdoodles sound fantastic. I haven’t had them in years. My second grade teacher used to make them from us. She was a fantastic teacher so I associate happy memories with the ‘doodles.
