Thick, super soft Snickerdoodle cookie with big cinnamon flavor and a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Preheat the oven to 375° and have ready a baking sheet lined with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Set aside.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside until ready to use.
Add 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar and the butter to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. If you do not have a stand mixer, use a large mixing bowl and a handheld mixer. Mix on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, followed by the lemon juice and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until incorporated.
Scoop out heaping tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Roll the top in the sugar-cinnamon mixture and place on the baking sheet at least 2" apart. Bake for 14 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
