I had picked up some large size Snicker doodle cookies at a local bakery. They were the best I had ever had. So I did some research and ended up combining a few different recipes to make this one. I used a large ice cream scoop to scoop the dough out with. To get them crisp on the outside and tender on the inside I rolled them into a ball and then rolled them into the sugar cinnamon mixture. I baked them and then half way through I slightly smashed them with a fork. This worked for me and my oven but I know everyone's oven is different. You begin by adding your softened butter with the sugar and creaming them together. Then I added the eggs one at a time and mixed them in. After that I added everything else in one at a time.After it was all combined I rolled the dough into about 2 inch balls, I used the ice cream scoop as a guide. Then I rolled the cookie balls into the sugar cinnamon mixture and baked them on a parchment lined cookie pan.

They turned out perfect for us.

Creaming everything together.

I mixed the sugar cinnamon mixture on a small plate.

Rolling the cookies in the sugar mixture.

I put them on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

The crinkled edges are the best.
