Do you ever just get the urge to make something sweet? That rush of sugary goodness when you taste a piece of your dough and go… holy hell, that was awesome…? Well, if you haven’t felt that… I really don’t know why you’re here (please leave and find another blog to follow). Let’s just say that I often have urges to bake horrifically unhealthy things. When I was younger, this wasn’t great, but now that I have friends all over the place that do appreciate a good cookie or brownie bar – let’s just say: the baking sometimes gets out of control. This is one of those stories.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extra
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat your oven to 375F, and while that’s heating up – begin by whisking together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt)
  2. Get out an electric mixer or your very own hands and beat together butter, brown sugar and 1 cup of sugar (if you don’t have brown sugar- substitute 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp molasses)
  3. Beat in the eggs and vanilla (yum) – and then reduce the speed (if you absolutely must) – and then add in the whole flour mixture. Yeah… I know how good it looks but control yourselves please
  4. In another small bowl, combine the rest of the sugar and cinnamon and roll the dough into balls in the cinnamon sugar. Place them on parchment paper lined baking sheets
  5. Place those pieces of sugar in the oven for 12-14 minutes (mine were perfect at 12) – cool if you must, eat if you please.

Yeah. so cookies. Can we talk about how snicker doodles don’t actually have cinnamon in the batter? This was a huge hit for my assumed knowledge about baking… on the other hand, it did make everything much easier to put together and with my hands absolutely covered in dough – I didn’t mind that it was only sugary-flavored. Either way, I still ate most of it (Spoiler: all of it) The cookies are so incredibly good and I can’t wait to send them off to all of the people – I’ve found the best holiday present so come Christmas, send me an address and you will receive cookie love.
