Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe
Say Hello to the King of Christmas Cookies… The Snickerdoodle.
This is the cookie so many of us remember making with mom, especially around the holidays.
Little hands, rolling sweet dough balls in cinnamon sugar. Soft pillowy cookies, hot out of the oven, kissed with spice.
The tangy-sweet taste of holiday spirit.
Snickerdoodle Cookies + Whoopie Pies
Classic snickerdoodles are pretty spectacular on their own.
However, squish two snickerdoodle cookies together with fluffy frosting and you’ve got something truly magical.
Today’s Snickerdoodle Cookie Whoopie Pie Recipe is a ramped up double-decker golden glittering snickerdoodle cookie treat filled with ultra soft cinnamon marshmallow filling.
The cookies themselves are a flatter version of my mom’s perfect snickerdoodle recipe, which makes them easier to sandwich and stack.
(If you want to make the fluffier version seen below, chill the dough for one hour before baking.)
Snickerdoodles Recipe with Cinnamon Frosting
The cinnamon frosting is a hybrid of half traditional frosting and half marshmallow fluff, which makes it extra light and airy… More like a “cream pie” or whoopie pie filling.
These little beauties look fabulous on holiday cookie platters, and are just the sort of treat to take to school or office parties.
They are utterly divine in taste and texture. Are you convinced to try them?
Let’s do this!

Snickerdoodle Whoopie Pie Recipe
For the Snickerdoodles:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar, divided
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
For the Frosting:
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 7 ounces marshmallow fluff
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line several baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3–5 minutes. Then beat in the eggs and scrape the bowl. Turn mixer on low and slowly add the flour mixture until well combined.
- Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Use a 1 1/2-tablespoon cookie scoop to measure out dough balls. Roll each ball in your hands to even them out, then roll in cinnamon sugar to thoroughly coat.
- Place the balls on prepared baking sheets, 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 8–9 minutes, until just barely golden around the edges. Cool for several minutes on the baking sheets before moving.
For the Frosting:
- Cream the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon together until light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl and mix in the marshmallow fluff.
- Match up two cookies that are of equal size and shape. Turn the bottom cookies over. Use a piping bag (or zip-bag with the corner cut off) to pipe the filling onto the bottom cookie. Add the top cookie on each sandwich and press down.

I am just wondering if these cookies can be frozen?
Sure! Freeze them flat in a single layer. Once they are hard, you can stack them in a freezer bag or plastic container.
A little late to the game on this recipe, but OMGosh! I am in love. I wanted to find a stepped up snickerdoodle recipe to enter into my county fair and I stumbled upon yours. These are wonderful and I can’t wait to see how they do at the fair!
Thanks so much for reporting back. I’m so glad you liked them! :)
