These snickerdoodles are soft, light and chewy! Cinnamon and sugar coat the dough before baking. What could be better?!

To make these cookies you will need the following ingredients. While getting your ingredients ready preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cream room temperature butter and sugar (reserving 2 tablespoons) on low speed in an electric mixer. Add eggs and mix on stir speed to combine. Add vanilla extract and stir to combine.

Add flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar and a pinch of cinnamon and mix flour in completely. Put dough covered in fridge for 30 mins or freezer for 10 mins.
