Let me just say these are probably the best snickerdoodles i've ever had. This was my first time making them so i wasn't sure what to expect. They're really easy to make! I was glad this recipe didn't call for the cream of tarter, it might have ruined the recipe. These cookies are perfectly moist in the middle and they're the right size too! The only thing I would do differently next time is cutting the cinnamon sugar part in half. I was left over with a lot of cinnamon sugar.

3/4 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine 3/4 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter in medium bowl. Beat with mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg. Set aside.

Lightly spoon flour in measuring cup. Level with knife. Combine flour, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, beat until just combined. Shape dough into balls.

Combine 1/3 cup sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small shallow dish. Roll balls in sugar mixture and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes or until tops crack. Cool on baking sheet for 1 minute. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.
