Do you have a cookie that was THE cookie before you went gluten free? You know, the cookie you couldn’t resist when you saw them sitting on their cookie plate on the kitchen counter. For me that cookie was a snickerdoodle. Oh man, I get excited just saying snickerdoodle! I have shed a few tears over failed gluten free snickerdoodle attempts over the past couple of years, but these…well, these where SO good that I may have been found guilty of hiding them in my bedroom so that no one else could have one. I was also convicted of stashing some of them in the freezer where the kids NEVER look.  I’m not ashamed; it’s a freaking cinnamon and sugar snickerdoodle!!! Once you taste them I am sure you will do and say all sorts of crazy things too.

I was however a nice neighbor and delivered a dozen of my almost 5 dozen cookies to my friend Beth and her husband Mark since she was in yoga training and deserved cookies for studying so diligently the entire month of January. She was REALLY nice and took a few to class with her and shared them with her classmates and teacher. I was so excited to hear that she was actually asked “Are you sure these are gluten free? They don’t taste gluten free.” Hello, snickerdoodle score!

I swapped things up a bit with this batch of cookies and used Cup 4 Cup gluten free all-purpose flour instead of my normal go-to Better Batter. In my humble opinion the Cup 4 Cup made a far superior snickerdoodle than any other gluten free flour I have previously tried. Not that the other cookies weren’t delicious, because they were. It was the texture of these snickerdoodles paired with the flavor that blew our minds. There was no strange chalky or gritty texture, no crumbling to pieces when we took bites from them. Just fluffy, soft, chewy cookie perfection. Yep, I said it…they are perfect!

5.0 from 1 reviews
Serves: approximately 4½ dozen
  • 2¾ cups Cup 4 Cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ cups plus 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Place the softened butter and 1½ cups sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs and mix well. Reduce the speed to low; gradually add the flour mixture a ½ cup at a time until incorporated completely.
  2. Stir together the cinnamon and the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl. Shape the dough into small balls about the size of a whole walnut with a mini-ice cream scoop; roll in cinnamon sugar and place on baking sheets lined with parchment about 1½ inches apart from one another.
  3. Bake the cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until edges are golden, 12-15 minutes. Let cool on the sheet pans on wire racks.
Store the cookies between sheets of parchment paper in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze precooked cookies for up to a month.

  1. OMG these cookies!!! I am *still* dreaming of them. Ahh and now it all comes together, two sticks of butter? Now I know why they were so extra decadent and so perfect! Butter makes cookies better. Fact! Thanks again so much for sharing these with me, they are seriously incredible!!

  2. cynthia says:

    These look so phenomenal! I don’t have a ton of experience baking with gluten-free flour substitutes, but judging from how tremendously different my rice flour baked goods are from all-purpose, it seems like a feat indeed to create picture-perfect, chewy decadence like this with gluten-free flour. Gorgeous :) glad to have found you this week, Meg!

  3. Holy eff. Snickerdoodles, GF or otherwise, can do no wrong. I think I just found the motivation I need to study yoga. :) Glad to have connected with you! xox Em

    • Meg says:

      Haha!! Very true Emily! :) If you go for a month long yoga training course I will gladly make you some snickerdoodles. Or we could just get together and hang out minus the yoga intensive and just eat cookies.

  4. Those look AMAZING. I feel like I can smell them. Is that weird? Probably. Happy Valentines Day, Amiga! <3

    • Meg says:

      Well, if you can smell them, than my plan to have the first ever scratch and sniff food blog has come to fruition! Mwahahahaha! I adore you, thanks for stopping by to talk about cookies:)

  5. Wow.. I’m super jealous that Beth got to try these cookies. They look like clouds of dreamy cinnamon-y snickerdoodly goodness! And almost dangerously easy to make – with a list of ingredients that are always on hand! Ugh! Too good! :)

  6. Arsy says:

    These look incredible! I love snickerdoodles and haven’t had them in over 5 years! Have to try these!

  7. Meg says:

    Arsy, it is time for a snickerdoodle reunion for you! I think I should probably ship you some;)

  12. Madrisa says:

    Could you please clarify the amount of flour? There is a typo… Thanks.

    These look wonderful…

    • Meg says:

      Oh no Madrisa! You are so right. The correct amount is 2 3/4 cups, I changed it in the recipe. Thanks so much for pointing that out to me:)

  13. Keely says:

    I’m new to GF baking and am loving your site! Can you tell me what kind of GF all purpose flour you use? Right now I’m mixing my own but haven’t settled on favorite combination yet…

    • Meg says:

      Hey Keely! I am so glad you found our site. When mixing my own I like to use the America’s Test Kitchen blend that I posted last month when I reviewed their book. When I want a quick and easy gluten free all purpose flour I use Better Batter, King Arthur Flour, or Cup 4 Cup.
