There are a few cookie recipes that we all need to have in our repertoire and the Snickerdoodle is at the top of my list. They are the perfect combination of sweet and chewy with just a touch of crispness around the edges. When served slightly warm just out of the oven they are a little piece of heaven!
The secret ingredient for a chewy Snickerdoodle cookie is cream of tartar, something I’ve found to be hard to find if you live outside the U.S. But luckily you can buy it online. (this link goes to Amazon where I am an affiliate partner)
