I've been waiting for the letter 'S' in our second round of AlphaBakes as I've been wanting to make Snickerdoodles. I've never tried them or baked them before but I like the sound of it. It's basically a sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar. It's supposed to be cracked and crispy which mine turned out to be so that's a relief! They really taste of cinnamon and are perfect with a cup of tea.
I used a recipe from a book that my dear friend JL sent all the way from Australia! Thank you :) It's a lovely little book of cookies and I can't wait to try more recipes from it. I won't publish the recipe as I don't have permission but there are lots of recipes you can find online. I followed the recipe exactly and it worked beautifully. The main thing to remember is that these cookies really do spread a lot so make sure you leave plenty of room in between!
I'm sending this to AlphaBakes which I am hosting this month. Caroline from Caroline Makes hosts on alternate months. The letter is S for Snickerdoodle.
I'm also sending it to Tea Time Treats hosted by Janie from the Hedgecombers and Karen from Lavender and Lovage as the theme this month is Biscuits and Cookies!
you have to refrigerate the dough until firm. I used a small ice cream scoop to make a small ball of dough which is then rolled in cinnamon sugar
