Disneyland’s Snickerdoodle Cookies

If you have been to Disneyland you know about their fantastic snickerdoodle cookies. They are wonderfully fluffy and full of sugary goodness and our Disneyland’s snickerdoodle cookies recipe tastes exactly like those from the amusement park.

Would it be too much to say that I have dreamt of these chewy snickerdoodle cookies? Okay then I won’t say it, but I will say that after you have our snickerdoodle recipe, you’ll be the one dreaming of it. 

They are so light, fluffy, and buttery with the great crunchy cinnamon sugar outside coating. My kids absolutely LOVE these. They do not last long in my kitchen. 

I also enjoy bringing these to events and parties because they are an easy and classic cookie to make up. Plus you can even make them up ahead of time and freeze them. 

Making a copycat version of Disneyland’s delicious treats is so fun! We have so many other amazing Disneyland recipes. To name a few, our Disneyland’s chocolate peanut butter sandwich, peanut butter cookies (Disneyland inspired), and the fantastic Disney pumpkin muffins.

Disneyland snickerdoodle cookies – How to make the best snickerdoodle cookies you ever tasted:

To begin making these awesome cookies, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Then, in your large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar (I do this with a whisk). After they are well combined, set it aside for later.

In your medium-sized mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until the mixture becomes fluffy.

Then, add in the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract until all of the ingredients are completely mixed in.

PRO TIP: The butter needs to be soft not melted in order to get the dough to the correct texture.

Next, you need to add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix everything together until all the ingredients are completely incorporated together.

Now, in your small bowl, add in the cinnamon and sugar and mix them together. This is going to be the topping of the cookie. 

Taking the snickerdoodle cookie dough batter, roll the dough into 1 inch balls and then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar topping and place the ball on the baking sheet covered with parchment paper or lightly greased.

Use the bottom of a glass to slightly flatten the ball of dough. 

Once all of the cookies have been placed on the cookie sheet, take the extra cinnamon-sugar mix and sprinkle the top of the cookies. Then, simply place the cookie sheet into the oven at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes. 

After the timer goes off, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the cookies sheet for another 1-2 minutes. Then, snickerdoodle cookies from the pan and let them cool on a wire baking rack.

DO NOT OVERBAKE!! They will continue to cook for those 1-2 minutes on the baking sheet.

These cookies are soft and chewy! They won’t last long so you may want to make a double batch!

If you want another way to spice up the cookies you would always make up some of Sally’s baking addiction’s favorite cream cheese frosting and ice the cookies to send them over the top!

    Needed a quick and easy recipe to teach my stepdaughter how to bake. ? She had so much fun helping with these. Instead of cinnamon and sugar though I mixed together pumpkin spice and sugar for her to roll them in. Loving them! Thank you for sharing!

    Hi, This recipe is almost exactly the one my grandmother then my mother used for Snickerdoodles and then me except instead of butter we use Crisco.....probably because it was cheaper...never thought to use butter until I didnt have any Crisco! I have tried butter, 1/2 and 1/2, and butter flavoured Crisco but I always go back to the original. I guess it's what I am use to! I love snickerdoodles!
    • Hi Alisha, Cream of tartar is also often added to baked products to help activate the alkaline baking soda. In fact, cream of tartar mixed with baking soda is what gives us baking powder. We have another snickerdoodle recipe on our blog that doesn't require any cream of tartar. https://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/04/moms-snickerdoodles-recipe.html
  3. I made these tonight. They were super easy but mine came out crepe thin. The dough was a little soft when I rolled them. I put the dough in the fridge and will try another batch. Hope that fixes the thickness. Still, even crepe-thin, they are delicious!
  4. I just happened to stumble across your recipe on Pinterest. I'm not a fan of snicker doodles, but it's Christmas and they make a wonderful addition to a cookie tray. That being said, I just had one (actually 4 of them, but who's counting!) of your snicker doodles and they are hands down the best I've ever eaten. I did eat mine a little warm so it wasn't crunchy at all. Super delicious! This recipe made it into my super secret recipe book! Thank you so much for sharing.

    I made these last weekend and they were so good, I had to make them again for Christmas. The first batch I thought were surely undercooked, but after they cooled, they firmed up and were the best dang snicker doodles I've ever had! And of course while those were cooking I ruined the 2nd batch by adding more time so definitely don't overcook. The ones we made for Christmas were perfect after I knew what I was doing and our 2 year old had so much fun sprinkling the cinnamon sugar mixture on the cookie dough balls. We loved this recipe. My mom wants the recipe now. Mmmm! Thank you!

    I just made these for the first time for my family. They all said it was the best snickerdoodle they ever ate. My son Steve 6 and took 6 home. My daughter and my grandchildren took a bag home and I had a few left for me. Thanks for such a great recipe.

    I love these cookies. I've made them a few times already. But I habe noticed that when i make the dough it comes out very sticky amd hard to roll in to small balls. So I placed it in the fridge to chill for only about 30 mins. And they were so easy to roll out after that.
