These Snickerdoodles are simple to make, soft and chewy and filled with sweet cinnamon flavor.
More and more I’m trying to cook things from scratch, with ingredients that are pronounceable and simple.
Also organic and local, if and when it’s possible. I’ve made Italian bread, French bread, pizza dough and biscuits from scratch (easier than you’d think!), and this year I plan to make mozzarella and ricotta cheeses too!
Note: I don’t make ALL our bread, but I’ve made some of it. You know, to clarify.
One thing I’ve tried to do is make more cookies from home, as opposed to buying them from the grocery store.
My kids get to pick a small dessert after dinner (one cookie, one little piece of chocolate, a small bowl of ice cream, etc.), as well as a treat in their lunchboxes.
Now those cookies I used to buy are mostly baked from scratch on the weekends.
Which also means
I get to lick we get to lick the cookie dough bowl, something that’s definitely missed when you buy the cookies from the supermarket.
It’s hard to stray away from chocolate chip cookies.
They’re a classic, and I love them.
But this week I thought we’d try something different: Snickerdoodles!
Cinnamon sugar, buttery cookie—what’s not to love (especially warm right out of the oven with a cold glass of milk)?
Yum! Tip: eat a cookie while it's still warm!
