Secrets to Soft, Fluffy, Chewy Snickerdoodles

Sift the Flour

Sifting the flour before measuring it, loosens it up so it is no longer compacted.

Weigh the Ingredients

Measuring by weight, not volume is the only way to get precise results time after time.

Use room temperature butter

Warm butter will cause the cookies to spread when baking.

Use cold eggs

Eggs straight from the fridge will keep the dough chilled, resulting in thick cookies.

Don't overbake.

Remove the cookies when the edges have just set.

Cool on a wire rack.

Let the cookies cool completely before "resting them".

Rest before eating.

Resting the cookies in an airtight container will make them soft, chewy, and delicious.

Follow these techniques for cookies you can't stop eating.
