Super Simple Cinnamon Snickerdoodles!

Since getting access to the Food Network on Freeview, we have been binge-watching so many cooking shows lately. Many of the sweet chefs kept referencing this thing called a ‘Snickerdoodle’. At first, I thought it was a chocolate-nut type of dish, simply because the word ‘Snicker(s)’ in there. However, upon googling, I discovered a quite appealing cinnamon coated sugar cookie. I hunted down a recipe, tried it, tweaked it, and I would love to share it with you here.

For this recipe you will need the following:

1 + ½ Cups of white or castor sugar.
½ Cup of butter (softened).
½ Cup of oil (canola or vegetable oil, don’t use olive or nut oils, as they will overpower the flavour of the cookie).
2 Eggs.

2 + ¾ Cups of white plain flour.
2 teaspoons of Cream of Tartar.
1 teaspoon of Baking Soda (Bicarb Soda will suffice).
¼ teaspoon of Salt.

¼ Cup of white or castor sugar.
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon.

Step One:
Heat oven to 200°C (400°F). In a large mixing bowl, combine the first measure of sugarbutteroil, and eggs with a spatula.

Step two:
Stir in the flourcream of tartarbaking soda, and salt. Continue mixing until mixture forms a soft dough.

Step three:
Combine the ¼ cup sugar with the cinnamon. Roll the dough into 2-3cm balls. Toss the dough balls in the cinnamon sugar. Lay the coated balls on a lined baking tray or cookie sheet. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until cracks form on the top of the cookies. Remove the cookies from the oven and let rest on cooling rack until set.

This recipe will yield between 30-50 cookies (depending on the size of the cookies). These are a fantastic cookie to have on hand for unexpected guests, or to take to a family gathering. They have gone down a treat in my family, Kayla and I both love them, and my parents both dig in whenever they drop in for coffee.

Give this recipe a go, its a great treat and super easy to make. This recipe that would be heaps of fun to make with kids, and they would get a kick out of making something for themselves.

Thanks for reading,

Be Kind

    […] Halloween time is upon us, and for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, that means that Autumn is well and truly in swing. To me, Autumn conjures up visions of falling leaves, cool evenings, crackling fires, and hot chocolates. It is also the season when pumpkins are ripe and readily available. Pumpkin is such a versatile vegetable, and can be used to many ways. Combined with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, ‘pumpkin spice’ has become a phenomenon world wide. While looking around for something new to bake, I decided to look for a variation on one of our family favourites, the Snickerdoodle, a recipe for which can be found here. […]
