Snickerdoodles are an easy cookie to put together. Super yummy and fun to share. 

I made these without pecans, your welcome to if you prefer.


  • 2 large cookie sheets
  • 2 large bowls for mixing
  • Spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Spatula
  • Oven mits

Do not use an electric mixer. Cookies will not be correct.


  • 2 sticks of real butter softened (set out do not use the microwave)
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 table spoon of pure vanilla
  • 1 table spoon of water
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 table spoon of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda

Dusting mixture:

  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 table spoons of cinnamon

Pre heat oven to 350°

In 1 mixing bowl combine all your wet ingredients excluding the water. Stir till thoroughly combined. Slowly add your sugar, stir till combined well.

In the other mixing bowl combine the rest of your dry ingredients, stir very well. 

Now slowly add your dry ingredients to the wet, stir very well. If mixture seems dry, add the water.

In your small mixing bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Form your dough into 1 inch balls and roll into your dusting mixture. Set each on your ungreased cookie sheets leaving around 2 inches between each cookie. 

Bake at 350° till the bottom of the cookie is a light brown in color. About 10 minutes depending on the temperature of your oven. Allow cookies to cool before you remove them from the baking sheet.

Makes about 40 cookies.
