  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In small bowl, combine all dry ingredients except Snickerdoodle Cane Sugar, mixing thoroughly.
  3. In large bowl, cream together butter, eggs and most of Snickerdoodle Cane Sugar tin (reserve some to sprinkle on cookies after baking). Slowly add in dry ingredients, mixing well to combine thoroughly.

  4. Using an ice cream scoop, roll mixture into balls and arrange on an ungreased baking tray, allowing around 2” between each ball.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes, then broil on high for 1 minute – this is the secret to deliciously chewy insides and crispy edges.
  6. Remove sheet from oven, and immediately remove cookies. While still warm, sprinkle with remaining Snickerdoodle Cane Sugar, and allow to set.
