Snickerdoodles Cookie Recipe
For as long as I have known my husband, his absolute favorite cookie has been the Snickerdoodle cookie. He really loves Snickerdoodles! He would buy them and hoard them not wanting to share with anyone.
However, every time he has had Snickerdoodles, we have purchased them. I am not sure why because both of love baking but we have never tried to make them on our own. As part of the 4th Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, we decided that we could make an amazing Snickerdoodle cookie all on our own this year.
This simple to make yet rich in flavor cookie was a hit in our house and I hope that the several dozen that we sent out were a hit as well!
ABOUT THE GREAT FOOD BLOGGER COOKIE SWAP
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap brings together food bloggers from around the world in celebration of all things scrumptious. The premise is this: sign up. Receive the addresses of three other food bloggers. Send each of them one dozen delicious homemade cookies. Receive three different boxes of scrumptious cookies from other bloggers. Eat them all yourself (or, you know, share. If you want. No judgement either way.) Post your cookie recipe on your blog. See everyone else’s cookie recipes. Salivate. Get lots of great ideas for next year’s cookie swap.
