This was my first time baking Snickerdoodles. My 10yo had them at a school event so she insisted I bake for our Christmas cookie list. I never tried a Snickerdoodle so this new for me. I scoured Pinterest for a recipe and found multiple recipes most required cream of tarter. Finally, I found a recipe that did not have cream of tartar as an ingredient. This led to me researching the need for cream of tartar and found it is leavening agent when combined with baking powder. I would say a snickerdoodle is a butter cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar. My 10 yo gave these two thumbs up!
