Brown Butter Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle cookies are one of the best cookies you can prepare for the holiday season. Bursting with cinnamon flavor it’s like these cookies are a shout-out to start holiday baking as soon as the cold season is starting. These Brown Butter Snickerdoodle cookies are nothing else than some buttery cinnamon cookies rolled into a cinnamon sugar mixture and then baked until soft, thick and puffed and the smell while baking fills all the house with pure joy and happiness.

The recipe is very quick and easy to prepare, the dough needs no chilling before baking, and you can have these cookies done in less than 30 minutes which is so great.

What is specific to snickerdoodle cookies is the use of cream of tartar instead of baking powder, which brings their specific tangy flavor and helps them rise more and makes them softer. Browning the butter gives them an irresistible nutty flavor, so if possible don’t skip this step.  You can make these Brown Butter Snickerdoodle Cookies in advance, and you can even freeze baked cookies for up to two months.
