These Snickerdoodles are soft, chewy and cinnamon-y. A delicious and easy cookie for any time of year! Makes a big batch so you can freeze half to enjoy later!
Hello friends! Welcome to day #3 of Christmas Cookie Week! I hope you have enjoyed the first two recipes from this week: Butter Tart Squares with A Shortbread Cookie Crust and Turtle Cookies. So far I think the Turtle Cookies might be my favourite…well I love the butter tart squares too…oh, but I really love these Snickerdoodles…hmmm it’s so hard to choose.
I had never actually made Snickerdoodles before, that’s kind of weird I know. I have eaten them, just never made them. And they’re a cookie my kids ask for a lot, so I figured there was no time like the present! And this recipe did not disappoint. These Snickerdoodles are soft, chewy and cinnamon-y. Yummo. My kids went crazy for them!
And they are so easy to make too, which is fabulous! The recipe isn’t complicated so you can whip up a batch last minute before guests come over, or have them ready for when the kids get home from school. My kids love coming home to fresh baked cookies! The first thing they do after they get their boots off is head to the kitchen to see what’s waiting for them! I love that, and I hope it’s something they remember fondly about their childhood. 🙂
I hope you enjoy these Snickerdoodles! We sure did…they’re now in my cookie rotation full time.
