#50 Snickerdoodles

Ideal Me is sitting at her desk, listening to some calm yet productively upbeat music while working on those soul sucking college essays for transfer apps.

Actual Me is sitting on the couch watching Top Chef: Texas while looking at pictures of food that I made, but sadly do not have any more. Why don’t I have this food, because it gets eaten so damn fast now! I make a batch of cookies and POOF!

Even my brother, who has a diet that consists of mostly pasta and anything easy (he’s a law student), makes these cookies! Clearly, they’re good cookies if even he is making them. I love you…:)

The name of this cookie is just so silly I cant get over it. Who even thought of that? Why aren’t they called Cinnamon Sugar Cookies? It’s just out of control.

Aside from the ridiculous name, the cookies are amazing. I’m such a chocolate lover, and it is so obvious, but snickerdoodles hold a place in my sweet little heart. I can never just have one snickerdoodle, but then again I can never really just have one of any cookie..can you?

The Snickerdoodle recipe that my mother always used was the Betty Crocker one, and it was the one I always used too. I decided to look online and see what other people were using and found this recipe that got over 3,000 reviews averaging with 4 1/2 stars. Crazy, I know. The funny thing is that the only difference between the two recipes is that this one has vanilla extract, where as Betty’s doesn’t. Next time I think I might do half vanilla and half almond extract. Hmmmm, the possibilities

 

 

 

I’ve got to start figuring out what to make for Thanksgiving! Eek!

Enjoy!

    I’m a chocolate lover too, but snickerdoodles hold a special place in my heart. I can’t remember if the recipe I use calls for Vanilla or Almond extract, but going half and half sounds like it would be a yummy idea. Good luck working on the essay!
