Here's my favorite Snickerdoodle cookie dough. It's CHOCOLATE!


1 1/2 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

2 1/4 c. flour

1 tsp. cream tartar

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa


2 T. sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)


Beat 1 1/2 cups sugar and butter until fluffy. Add flour, cream tartar, soda, salt and cocoa. Mix well. In another bowl combine sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes until set. Remove from cookie sheets immediately.
