Snickerdoodles were my grandpa’s favorite cookie… one of mine too! The slightly crisp and chewy cookie with cinnamon spice flavor – yum! I’ve made Pumpkin Snickerdoodles before but wanted a new apple recipe and instantly thought of these! A great Fall treat for sure!
A classic snickerdoodle cookie with the perfect addition for Fall - Apples!
In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, 1 ¼ cup sugar and brown sugar and mix until creamy.
Add in eggs and vanilla until smooth.
Add in flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt and 2 tsp cinnamon and mix until combined.
Fold in grated apple. Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine remaining ¼ cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Scoop dough into 1” balls and toss in sugar mixture.
Place onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350F for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
