SnickerdoodleThere are many versions of this classic cookie.  People have their definite opinions (at least in my house) on what a snickerdoodle should taste like.  Chewy yet crisp, melt in your mouth and cakey, big but not too thick, and definitely not thin.  They’re not picky or anything.


SnickerdoodleI’m gonna go out on a limb and say this recipe covers pretty much anything one (kid)  could want in a snickerdoodle cookie.

Snickerdoodle = the epitome of comfort + it’s got a fun name!


We are on the road today.  Destination Destin, Floreeeedah!  We stopped just south of Nashville last night, and this morning although the hotel was very nice, the breakfast was blah.  Coffee weak.  Cinnamon roll too sweet and dry.  So now I’m writing this….and I’m seriously about ready to eat my screen.  I need me a cookie, and some decent coffee.

I feel like cookie monster. COOOKEEE.  Me want Kookeee!  What was I thinking I needed to make some snickerdoodles for the road?!


SnickerdoodleLet me tellya now what makes my snicks different and special.  Cream cheese, makes them cakey and the addition of nutmeg, just a wee bit of nutmeg to the cinnamon sugar, gives them that extra sumthin sumthin that makes you furrow your brow and go OOOO aahhhh.

Do I need to tell you that you need to make snickerdoodle cookies?  Today!  I think not.

Two things I feel like I need to stress when making this recipe: 1.) don’t skip the refrigeration of the dough 2.) do not forget to give the cookie dough a little press down with your palm otherwise you will have mountain blob cookies.

So there ya go! I need to go. I’ve got to find a Starbucks and convince my husband it’s pertinent that he exit the interstate to get his luverly wife a decent cup-O-jo.

Love ya’all, Sheila

P.S. I’m in the south at the present, so I’m sayin ya’all now.

P.S. Hey BTW the trees are bloomin here in Nashville, and it’s 71 degrees at 9am.  I think I might say here.  I forgot what green looked like.  It’s good.  Green is good.

    These look wonderful. What’s funny about snickerdoodle’s is they never are at the front of my mind when I think of desserts, but I absolutely love them when they’re in front of me. I may have to make these for our next family night or for the next family reunion. They’re so simple and tasty. Thanks for the reminder and wonderful photos 🙂

    All the best,
