These classic cookies with their cinnamon sugar coating are a perfect balance of crispy and chewy. This recipe is adapted slightly from the Delish Insane Sweets cookbook.


Units Scale

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar, divided

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl using a stand or hand mixer, beat butter with 1 cup granulated sugar and the brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Add the eggs, one at a time and beat to combine. Fold in dry ingredients until combined.

In a shallow bowl, combine remaining ¼ cup of granulated sugar with cinnamon.

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop and roll the dough into 1½”-inch balls, then roll balls in cinnamon sugar. Arrange about 2″ apart on prepared baking sheets (these cookies will spread).

Bake until the cookies begin to crack, about 12 minutes. Let cool on the trays 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.


These cookies are great for ice cream sandwiches.
