Snickerdoodles

I found out today that British people are deprived.




Deprived of the deliciousness known to all Americans as Snickerdoodles.




I can't imagine a life without cinnamony-sugary goodness in the form of a cookie. 

Sometimes I wonder why I live here. Will I forget about Snickerdoodles?

No chance.

It's Snickerdoodle week at The Java Cupcake! Everyone head over there to see some delicious Snickerdoodle cookie, cupcake, and other unique recipes!

While you're there, check out my Guest Post !

For now, I'm going to enjoy these.




Recipe from here! 
Makes over 27 cookies 

Ingredients
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Cream of Tartar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Cinnamon

~ Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F

~ Mix butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and eggs in a large bowl

~ Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl

~ Mix dry ingredients into the butter mixture

~ Chill dough in the fridge for about 15 minutes

~ Mix the 3 tablespoons of sugar and the 3 teaspoons of cinnamon together in a small bowl

~ Roll 1 inch balls of the snickerdoodle batter in the palms of your hands, then roll it in the cinnamon sugar mix until fully coated

~ Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes!


Voila! You British people are no longer deprived! 

And you Americans...you know you want to bake a batch!


Smooches! xoxo
