A Warm Tray of Homemade Snickerdoodles

Is there anything better than the smell of a freshly baked tray of snickerdoodles? There's nothing quite like the smell of cinnamon sugar wafting from the kitchen.

We all love all types of cookies, but there is something special in the crinkled tops and pillowy thickness of a well-made snickerdoodle.

30 minutes
11 to 14 minutes
13 to 26 cookies


300 g (2⅓ cups) all-purpose flour
113 g (1 stick) unsalted butter, pliable but cool - about 15 ºC (60 °F)
100 g (½ cup) coconut oil, solid but creamy - about 20 ºC (70 °F)
300 g (1½ cups) sugar
7.5 g (1¼ teaspoons) kosher salt
4 g (1 teaspoon) baking powder
0.6 g (⅛ teaspoon) grated nutmeg
15 g (1 tablespoon) vanilla extract
1 large egg, straight from the fridge

For the Cinnamon Sugar

50 g (¼ cup) sugar
5 g (2 teaspoons) ground cinnamon, or to taste

For the Dough

  1. Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 205 ºC (400 °F). Sift flour into a medium bowl.
  2. Combine butter, coconut oil, sugar, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on low speed to moisten, then increase to medium and beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, pausing to scrape with a flexible spatula halfway through. With the mixer running, crack in the egg and continue beating until smooth. Reduce speed to low, add flour, and mix to form a stiff dough.
  3. Divide into thirteen 70 g (2½- ounce) portions or twenty-six 35 g (1¼-ounce) portions.

For Dusting and Baking the Cookies

  1. Mix sugar with the ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
  2. Roll each portion of dough into a smooth ball, tumble in Cinnamon Sugar until fully coated, and arrange on parchment-lined aluminum baking sheets, leaving 6 cm(2½ inches) between each. Flatten into 1.5 cm (½-inch) discs and generously sprinkle with the remaining Cinnamon Sugar.
  3. Bake at 205 ºC (400 °F) until the Snickerdoodles begin to spread, about 6 minutes for either size, then rotate baking sheet and reduce oven temperature to 180 ºC (350°F). Continue baking until the cookies are firm around the edges but still puffy in the middle, about 5 minutes for small, 8 minutes for large. Cool on the baking sheet until the edges crisp, about 10 minutes.
