  • 1 Stand Mixer
  • 1 cookie sheet

  • 1 cooling rack


  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar use organic or beet sugar to ensure that it’s vegan
  • 1 cup vegan butter softened we use Miyoko’s or Earth Balance
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 egg equivalent egg replacer we use JUST egg, Follow Your Heart vegan egg, or Bob’s Red Mill or Ener-G egg replacers.

For the Sugar and Cinnamon Topping

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C)

  • Add the 1 tablespoon vanilla extract and 2 equivalent egg replacer to the butter and sugar and beat until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir with a spoon to make sure the flour is completely incorporated in the cookie dough.

  • In a separate bowl, combine the ¼ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon (mix it around with a fork until it has a fine consistency)
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop out the cookie dough and roll into balls.
  • Roll the top of the balls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture and place sugar side up on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned.


  • Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to four days.
  • Freeze in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Bake as instructed.
  • Pro Tips

    Here are some pro tips to help you make perfect vegan snickerdoodles.
    • Take the butter out of the refrigerator and bring it to room temperature. Don't soften it in the microwave because the temperature of the butter won't be consistent.
    • Don't skip the cream of tartar and baking soda. These will ensure that the cookies are soft and puffy.
    • Let the oven fully preheat to 350°F (176°C) before baking the cookies.
    • Allow the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. This will prevent them from cracking and falling apart.
