Lately I’ve been CRAVING (as in seriously craving!!) Snickerdoodles. Sometimes that craving just comes and there’s nothing you can do but to make a big batch of Snickerdoodles, right? I’ve really loved my sugar cookie recipe lately (I used it for the Fruit Pizza Cookies and the Lemonade Sugar Cookies) so I just adapted that for Snickerdoodles. I did add a chill time because I wanted a thicker cookie here, then swapped out some of the white sugar for brown (for added flavor, moister and chewiness) and of course I added loads of cinnamon – and then that classic sugar cookie become a Snickerdoodle. You wouldn’t believe how perfectly soft and chewy and amazingly delicious these cookies are – well that is until you try them of course. And once you try them you’ll be head of heels in love!
I’ve made these twice in the last two weeks, apparently one batch wasn’t enough to curb the craving. The second time I made them when I had family coming over and you wouldn’t believe how quickly they disappeared. Kids love these and adults love them just as much. They totally take me back to being a kid. They are just one of those classic desserts that have been around forever and everyone get’s excited when the see (and smell) these cinnamon sugar coated cookies. You just can’t go wrong with a batch of these. They are perfect for any occasion or just a weekend treat. And it’s the weekend so you most definitely should get to baking!
