The best classic Snickerdoodles – easy to prepare and so good! You won’t be able to stop after one cookie… for sure ;P



For the batter:
1/2 cup (120g) butter, melted
1/2 cup (100g) sugar
1/4 cup (50g) brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla paste
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups (160g) spelt flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cardamom

To coat the cookies:
1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. confectioners’ sugar


1. Melt the butter and let cool down a bit. Add both sugars, vanilla paste, and melted butter to a large bowl and mix with a handheld mixer (or in a kitchen machine) until well combined. Add the egg and mix for about 2-3 minutes until the mixture is light in color and fluffy. Mix the spelt flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cardamom and add to the bowl – mix in with a spatula until just combined. Cover the bowl and let sit on the counter for about 30 minutes.

2. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and set aside. Mix the sugar, confectioners’ sugar, and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.

3. Use a small cookie scoop* to get about a tablespoon amount of batter and shape it into a ball. Roll this ball in the sugar-cinnamon mixture and then place it on the prepared baking sheet. Leave a good amount of space in between the dough portions because the dough will spread a lot. Bake the cookies for about 8-9 minutes or until the edges form and got some color, but the centers are still slightly soft. Take the cookies out of the oven and let cool down for a bit on the baking sheet, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool down completely. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.


Happy Baking!
