    These cookies were a big hit with the whole family! I think I'll have to make a double batch next time :) I baked them for 10 minutes and they were perfect. The only small change I made to the recipe was using a couple tablespoons more of sugar with the 2.5 teaspoons of cinnamon to roll the dough in. The cookies had the perfect amount of cinnamon flavour, highly recommend!

    Second time making this recipe because the first time the cookies didn’t last more than one day. This time I made a double batch and was told this is their new favorite cookie! Very good cookie, sweet and soft reminds me of when I was a kid and my mom made them for me, highly recommend.

    I thought this recipe was okay and easy to follow, but I've seen better snickerdoodle recipes on Yummly before (decided to try a new one for fun). My cookies ended up cooking perfectly in 11 minutes and 30 seconds as opposed to 9, but ovens vary. I thought the ratio for the cinnamon-sugar rolling was off (WAY too much cinnamon, turned the rolled dough pretty dark) and ended up adding about a tablespoon and a half more granulated sugar to even it out. This recipe is also pretty 'doughy' where after I cooked the first batch with 12 cookies on the sheet, they didn't really flatten out - the overall taste of the cookie was meh/too doughy. The next batch I ended up flattening a bit, then covering in the sugar/cinnamon mixture, and that made the cookies turn out WAY better, and I wished the recipe would have mentioned something about that. I flattened the cookies for the rest of the batches and still cooked them for the same time mentioned above - they turned out MUCH better than the first batch.

    mmmmmm so yummy and easy! like delightful soft pillows of cinnamon goodness. the only messy part was rolling the dough into balls, but chilling the dough first definitely helps. next time i would probably pop it back in the freezer between batches. this recipe made just over 48 cookies for me! will definitely make again

    The cookies ended up being soft in the middle and only lightly crunchy on the outside when I baked mine for 13 minutes! Love them! Definitely will make again!

    These are great! My kids loved rolling them around in the sugar. But they were surprisingly not super sweet. Perfection!

    These are the best non-chocolate cookies! They get gobbled up every time I make them. I refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours to overnight, and they end up so chewy and delicious!
