Even though I took time off from the blog because of my crazy families hectic schedule that does not mean I stopped cooking and baking. With a teenager in the house (plus teenager friends) I seem to be baking a lot more often 🙂 But I don’t mind because I love it.
This recipe is one of my oldest son’s favorite recipes. He just loves a Snickerdoodle cookie! It’s an easy recipe and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry. I found the recipe on Lovintheoven.com blog. I promise you will not be disappointed. You must add this recipe to your to do list!
Recipe from: Lovintheoven.com Blog
Yields: 16 to 18 cookies
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on high speed. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
- In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees while you let the dough rest for 30 to 60 minutes in the refrigerator.
- In a small bowl, combine the sugar with the cinnamon for the topping.
- Take about 2 1/2 tablespoons of the dough and roll it into a ball. Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press it onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining cookies.
- Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes and no more. The cookies may seem undercooked, but will continue to develop after they are removed from the oven. When the cookies have cooled they should be soft and chewy in the middle.
Enjoy baking and thanks for stopping by!

At My Baby Pajamas we decided to mix it up a bit. Instead of doing a weekly Tuesday Cook Off post we decided we would post a recipe when it was a winner. So for now on we are going to call our dessert post Tasty Treats (thanks to Jeff Fisher) and our dinner recipe post Family Feast.
So this post is a Tasty Treat for sure. If you love lemon you are going to love these EASY lemon cookies. My youngest son came home to me last week and asked me why I never made him lemon cookies. I said I didn’t even know you liked lemon cookies. Well, then he proceeded to tell me he likes lemonade and Lemonheads so he must like lemon cookies. 🙂 I was a little unsure about making a whole batch of lemon cookies and then my husband and I would be stuck eating them!
So I searched Pinterest for a recipe that didn’t seem too lemony and that was easy too. I found the perfect winner. These cookies were so easy to make and the WHOLE family loved them!! This included my older son who doesn’t really like lemon favor. But he loved them and asked for them in his lunch.
Now I know these cookies are not totally 100% made from scratch but sometimes moms just need an easy way out every once in awhile 🙂
Recipe from Gimmesomeoven.com
Yields about 24-30 cookies
- 1 package lemon cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- juice of half a lemon (about 1 Tbsp.)
- zest of half a lemon (about 1 tsp.)
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar for decor (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, lemon juice and zest until well blended. Form dough into small balls (about 1 Tbsp.), and drop into a bowl of confectioners’ sugar. Roll them around until they’re lightly covered. Once sugared, place on a lightly-greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.
**To get a rounder, fluffier cookie, let the dough refrigerate at least 30 minutes. (You can also prepare the sugared balls of dough on the cookie sheet, and just refrigerate the sheet for about ten minutes for a similar effect.)
I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we did!
