Hello Friends!

We can’t believe Autumn is approaching us soon, can you ?  We LOVE the Fall and these Snickerdoodle Cookies are just in time for some classic Autumn baking!

Snickerdoodle cookies are super easy to make.  Ideally, staple ingredients like flour, sugar, butter, salt and baking soda are all you need to make the dough.  No need to roll the batter nor refrigerate the dough to shape them into cookies.

Just shape the cookie dough into little balls, using a small cookie scoop will make them all the same size.  Then roll them in to a mixture of sugar and ground cinnamon and bake for 10 minutes.  These Snickerdoodle Cookies took my daughter Lizzy less than 15 minutes to make.  Very easy!

 

 

I love the fact that my daughter wanted to make an old fashioned recipe like Snickerdoodle Cookies.  She made these in her culinary class a few years ago in high school and now she enjoys making them all the time!

These cookies were truly amazing!  Sweet, soft and chewy inside with every bite.  You have to try this recipe!

What are some of your favorite cookies?  Tell us and we’ll try to make them!

In the meantime, have a wonderful day!

Warmly,

Anna and Liz
