What Is A Snickerdoodle Cookie?

A Snickerdoodle Cookie is a cookie prepared with butter, granulated sugar, salt, and flour and then baked up and rolled in cinnamon and sugar!

They are light cookies with a slight crisp to them, but they are known for being soft and delicious cookies with lots of flavors.

Why is it called a Snickerdoodle? 

According to Wikipedia, they are called Snickerdoodles because it comes from the German word, Schneckennudeln, which means snail noodles. No idea how that translated, but obviously, the name stuck.

But at least the name is fun to say!

How To Keep Snickerdoodle Cookies Soft

There is nothing worse than making a batch of cookies, only to find that they go hard. So, to keep Snickerdoodle Cookies soft, like they are supposed to be, here are some hints:

  • Do not overbake them. When they start to harden up, remove them from the air fryer, as they will harden as they cool down. 
  • Let them sit in the air fryer for a couple of seconds to harden up, then remove. 
  • Place them into an airtight container or sealable bag to keep them soft.  They will keep at room temperature for about 3 days.

Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe Without Cream Of Tartar

While we might not all keep cream of tartar on hand, it is a vital ingredient for a true Snickerdoodle cookie. 

If you do not have it, you can use lemon juice or white vinegar for it. It will provide the same tangy flavor that a traditional snickerdoodle cookie has.

How To Store

To keep them soft, you need to transfer them into an airtight container and leave them on the counter. 

They will last for about 2 to 3 days before they start to harden.

Can You Freeze Snickerdoodles?

Yes, it’s a great cookie to freeze.  They will last between 2 to 3 months in your freezer. To freeze correctly, let them cool to room temperature and then place them in an airtight container. 

To use from frozen:  Thaw them in the refrigerator or counter, and then consume. 

How To Make Cookies In An Air Fryer Basket or Tray
