Snickerdoodles

Are they sugar cookies? Are they cinnamon cookies? What are these delicious things?

If you want the real answer, they’re a lot of butter, sugar and a perfect dash of cinnamon. Why are snickerdoodles so delicious? I can’t really tell you, all I know is that I love them and if no one was watching, I could eat an entire batch before they even finished cooling!

These snickerdoodles have just the right amount of softness without tasting under cooked. They hold their shape and make you think they’re hard, but once you bite in, its like eating a cloud.

Test Kitchen: Opinion and Changes

These delicious cookies came from Sally’s Baking Addiction and as I always say, anything from SBA is delicious! Enough said.

 

When I made these for Labor Day I did not have access to a stand mixer, otherwise I would have made double the batch! Snickerdoodles are an absolute crowd pleaser, especially ones that are as soft and tasty as these! The cookies were almost gone before anyone had their entree. Now that’s the sign of a good cookie!
