1 Giant Snickerdoodle Cookie

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar + 1/4 tsp for sprinkling on top
2 Tablespoons beaten egg (crack the egg, beat it, and use 2 tbsp)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar (no substitutions)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (divided)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray or use a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir the butter and 3 Tbsp sugar together until creamed - mixture may be a bit crumbly. That's OK. Add the egg and vanilla until mixed. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt,cream of tartar, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon until just combined. Do NOT overmix.
  3. Place the dough in the center of the prepared cookie sheet into a tall ball (see pictures above). Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon sugar. Bake for 14-16 minutes until the edges are browned. The center may appear undone but that's what you want. It will firm up. Allow to cool completely ON the baking sheet. Enjoy!
