Snack or Yack: Snickerdoodle Cookies


McKenna Beary, Contributor

Are you looking for a yummy fall treat? Well, I have the recipe for you. has the fastest and easiest recipe for snickerdoodle cookies. These cookies took a total of 1 hour and 15 minutes to make. Making these cookies required minimal effort. All you have to do is preheat your oven, mix together your ingredients, and bake your cookies.

I am someone who enjoys baking, but enjoys eating them even more so for me these were quick, easy, and delicious. If you are someone who doesn’t like baking you should definitely give this recipe a try. I’m sure it would change your opinions on baking. In total this recipe made over a dozen cookies! If you plan on making these I suggest making them for an event or for family. If you don’t want to make all the cookies at once you can store and keep the dough pre-made in your fridge. This is perfect for an individual serving.

Some snickerdoodle recipes produce thick and puffy cookies, others flat and crispy, and some in between. This recipe gave the perfect combination of both, leaving a crispy outside with a soft chewy inside. When eating a snickerdoodle cookie you look for a soft texture with a perfect balance of cinnamon and sugar.

With these cookies, although they were good I felt they were lacking a bit of cinnamon. Snickerdoodles should have a very strong and almost overpowering cinnamon flavor but this recipe took a more dull approach. I think that it all depends on the type of cookie that you like. If I had to change one thing about this recipe it would be to add more cinnamon and take out the maple flavor. I get that they tried to do a fall take on this cookie but I think that the maple took away from the cinnamon. Other than that, my family and I really enjoyed these cookies and I definitely recommend giving them a try.
