Spectacular Snickerdoodle Cookies

Jun 27, 2022 | Recipe, Dessert

This soft and chewy cookie is coated in cinnamon sugar and made with Olive Oil. A healthier version of the classic recipe which uses butter.  A perfect cookie if you enjoy a treat that isn’t super sweet.

About 36-48 Cookies*


  • 1 Cup More Than Olives Delicate Intensity Extra Virgin Olive Oil (such as: Arbequina Delicate or Arbosana)
  • 1 ½ Cups White Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Cups All-Purpose Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon Cinnamon

Sugar Coating:

  • ¼ Cup White Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

reheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, add the More Than Olives Olive Oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Blend them together until smooth. 

Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to the wet mixture and mix until a thick dough is formed. Do not overmix. 

To make the coating, mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Using your hands, form walnut-sized balls with the dough. Roll each ball in the sugar coating, making sure the ball is completely covered with the sugar mixture. 

Place cookies at least 2-3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using a small fork, flatten them just a little to create a pattern on the top of each cookie. (optional) 

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until slightly brown on the bottom and still soft to the touch. Important do not overcook them.  If overbaked, the cookies will be very hard once cooled.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
Tonia Nichols
