“I don't think this is like most other Snickerdoodle recipes - in fact, I'd say they're more of a molasses or spice cookie. Either way, they are really good, and really chewy for those who like that kind of cookie. The cornmeal gives them a really interesting texture that I like a lot. The recipe says it makes 70 cookies, but either I made them too big or I ate more dough than I thought because I only got 56! This is from a 2003 Woman's Day magazine.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat butter, 3/4 cup of sugar, all of the brown sugar, cornmeal, molasses, spices, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl on medium speed for 3 minutes or until fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well blended.
  4. Gradually add in flour while mixing on low speed.
  5. Mix until well-blended. Place the remaining white sugar in a small bowl.
  6. Form balls of dough measuring 1 inch in diameter, roll in the sugar, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.
  7. Cool on cookie sheets for about 2 minutes before moving them to wire racks to finish cooling.
