When Brian and I started to get to know each other during the end of my sophomore year of college I baked him snickerdoodles for his birthday as a little surprise treat.  I had been making them since I was a little girl because to me, they are fun, tasty, and take a little more effort than your traditional chocolate chip.  Brian loved my snickerdoodles and has been craving them ever since 😉

Since Brian’s last exam that I will be here for during his second year of dental school was Monday, I thought that a snickerdoodle treat would be the perfect post-exam pick-me-up.



  • 1 cup softened margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups sifted flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the margarine and 1 1/2 cups sugar until creamy with an electric mixer.  Then, mix in the eggs thoroughly.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt.  Mix together the dry and wet mixtures until thoroughly combined.
Roll the dough into little balls (as big as you want!).  Mix together the cinnamon and remaining sugar.  Roll the dough balls into the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Place on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
What was the first treat you made for a special someone???

  1. They look delicious! I’d never heard of snickerdoodles until a couple of weeks ago – I’m British – I should try and bring them over here though, they would go down very well I’m sure!
