Tips on How to Make DAIRY FREE Snickerdoodle Cookies
- Preheating the oven before working on the cookie dough ingredients will save you a lot of time and saves half of your waiting time.
- Instead of using refined sugar, you can substitute it with brown sugar.
- When mixing butter and sugar, always make sure that it is fluffy and light, more like a buttery spread. Mixing it well will give you soft, nicely textured snickerdoodle cookies.
- You can place these delicious cookies in a small box and give them to vegan friends as a gift.
How to Make DAIRY FREE Snickerdoodle Cookies:
Before starting to mix the ingredients together, preheat the oven to 350F and prepare cookie sheets using a baking mat or parchment paper. After all of that’s set, you can now begin!
In a large bowl, cream together the vegan butter and sugar:
It should turn out light and fluffy:
Add the almond milk or your choice of dairy-free milk and mix until combined:
Next add the baking soda, salt, cream of tartar, cornstarch, all-purpose flour and mix well:
The dough should then look like this:
Chill the dough for at least 2 hours or best overnight. Use a ziplock bag in storing your dough for easier handling:
Using a mini cookie scooper, scoop the dough:
Coat the dough balls with the cinnamon sugar mixture:
To make the cinnamon sugar mixture, mix together the ground cinnamon and granulated sugar.
After coating the dough balls with the cinnamon-sugar mixture, place them on a non-stick cookie sheet:
Bake for 10 minutes, remove and cool on cookie rack:

These taste really good. Only issue I had is they got really hard when they cooled down. Any tips to keep them from getting hard when they cool down?
what vegan butter brand do you use?
Amazing! This is so yum!
Hi Bonnie! Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂
Is this for a dozen?
Hi! For the measurements that I used below, I have made 20 pieces of delicious Snickerdoodle cookies. Thank you for swinging by!
This recipe is not good I used crisco for a vegan butter because a comment wasn’t answered asking what vegan butter she used and the dough was hard and crumbly. It might not have been the Crisco that made it not work but they did not tase very good either.
Hi Alexis! Sorry about what happened but thank you for your feedback. I will try to look into this recipe and see how I can make it better.
Tried this with crisco, added 2 more tablespoons of almond milk.
I also avoided freezing it. Used a tablespoon and baked that way.
Turned out great! Light and crisp on the outside, slightly gooey in the inside.
Crisco is a touchy ingredient it truly needs to be creamed with the sugar, and the baking time has to be exactly spot on.
Hi Kyle! Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your kind words. xx Lainey

I found this recipe online and decided to choose it amongst all the other options. Well, I regret it. This recipe is terrible. I followed the directions exactly as noted, even double checked as I went. Cookies came out terrible and I ended up tossing them and making another recipe. Save yourself the time and don’t make them:). Thank you though!
