No. Google both for recipes and you will find they are are different cookies. My sugar cookies are mainly butter, flour, eggs and sugar with more sugar sprinkled on top before baking. My snickerdoodles have more leavening, cream of tartar, and are made into balls which are dipped into cinnamon and sugar before baking. no snickerdoodles have cinnamon and sugar cookies have sugar
