You guys, I’ve been working hard this weekend. I’ve been baking my heart out in an effort to share with you the tastiest of cookies! Starting today, and everyday until Christmas, I will be sharing one new cookie recipe each day! I guess some aren’t cookies, but they all fall under the dessert lover category, I assure you. There’s not much more that’s marvelous than that! Thanks, Katie!
Today’s recipe is one of my favorites. I’m sure you all know the amount of cinnamon I consume in my life, and I am a firm believe that the more cinnamon, the better.
These cookies, thanks to one ingredient, are light and fluffy, and melt in your mouth full of flavor.
When I make these, they don’t last very long. The crunchy outside gives way to a soft and chewy inside. Adding cinnamon and sugar to the outside completes it with an extra touch of flavor.
Now that I’ve made myself drool, and go grab one two more, It’s time to share the recipe! Enjoy!
Fat and Fluffy Snickerdoodle Cookies
|Prep time||30 minutes|
|Cook time||10 minutes|
|Total time||40 minutes|
|Misc||Child Friendly, Freezable, Pre-preparable|
|Occasion||Birthday Party, Casual Party, Christmas|
- 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp Milk
- 1 tsp Corn Starch
- 1/4 cup sugar (Used for dipping)
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon (Used for dipping)
|Mix together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla, mixing until smooth.|
|Add in flour, corn starch, baking powder, salt, and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Mix until dough starts forming.|
|Once mix has formed and is crumbly, add in milk. If yours is too thick and not forming dough, add in more milk, 1 tsp at a time. I did not have to add any extra, but you may.|
|Form a ball with dough, and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.|
|While waiting for the dough, make the Cinnamon Sugar mixture for dipping. Simply mix the sugar and Cinnamon together in a bowl.|
|After 20-30 minutes, remove the dough from the fridge. Form 1 inch balls, drop them in the cinnamon sugar mixture, and place them on a greased cookie sheet. These will spread, so be sure to leave some space between them!|
|Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Take them out when they look like they are fluffy, and lightly brown on the edge. You do not want them to bake too much, as they will bake more when you remove them.|
|Let cookies cool before storing. These taste great after being frozen, too!|
Some other fabulous things happened this weekend, too. Most of mine was spent on the couch, but we did make it to see Aaron’s parent’s Friday for dinner, and my friends stopped over Friday night. It was nice to have some other people to talk to! Saturday was spent on the couch, and baking. My mom came over and helped me back just about all the cookies I will be sharing with you. She was even baking on her own, but she knew I wanted to get these made to share with you all, and that I couldn’t do it all. Aaron would have helped, but he’s waited on me hand and foot, so it was nice to give him time to do things he wanted to get done!
Last night, Aaron and I met my parents and Matt at Red Lobster to celebrate Matt’s Birthday! His birthday is technically Wednesday, so we will be really celebrating it then, but we couldn’t head out to eat that night with everyone’s schedules!
Unfortunately, the pain pills I am on have made food and I have not been great friends. I tried to eat some things! Few bites of the biscuit, and I ultimately went with chicken fingers. I was nervous that seafood wouldn’t sit well, but I really only ended up eating half a chicken finger anyway. Aaron ate some of my salad, too! No worries, I still thoroughly enjoyed getting out and seeing my family, so it wasn’t a waste at all! Plus, Aaron’s lunch is now packed for tomorrow
Alright friends, I have an appt this morning, and heading back to the Doctor this afternoon! Hoping to hear some great news from him
