Snickerdoodle Surprise with Betty Crocker
Snickerdoodles have to be one of my absolute favorite cookies of all time. They stir up happy emotions as they remind me of my grandmother who I don’t get to spend nearly as much time with as I would like. She is quite the baker if I do say so myself. However, her recipes include directions like “cook until it feels to be the right consistency…” or “add a pinch of this and a smidge of that.” I remember trying her snickerdoodle recipe in college. I followed it step by step and the cookies, well, let’s just say they tasted nothing like 10 dozen she brings to the beach every year!
So how to get the snickerdoodles I long for? I’ve finally found a way with a little help from Betty Crocker®! And the best part is although most of the recipe includes a Betty Crocker® bag mix from WalMart, everyone will think they are homemade. They are that good. This snickerdoodle recipe is perfect for this time of year.
As always Chickadee helped me with the mixing. I love that they two of us baking together is becoming a family tradition in our home. Her love of baking spills over to her play kitchen and into her imagination on a daily basis.
So next time you are at Walmart grab a bag of Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix, some cream of tarter, cinnamon, and you probably already have sugar.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. I followed the top sugar cookie recipe on the back for drop sugar cookies. But, before mixing I added in 2 teaspoons of cream of tarter. Then mix together 4 tbsp. of sugar with 2tbsp. of cinnamon. Roll your dough into 1in in diameter size balls, roll them in the cinnamon/sugar mix, and then place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges start to brown. They will seem a little under cooked, but remember they will continue to cook even after removing them from the oven.
I am so excited to have a snickerdoodle recipe that yields amazing cookies and that is quick and easy to prepare during the craziness of the holiday season!
We will be spreading cheer with these simple, yet surprisingly sparkly cookies at our New Year’s Eve in London party tonight. (That is the party for parents of young kids where we will be toasting the New Year at 7:00, midnight in London!) How will you spread cheer this holiday season?
If you want to whip some up, make sure and grab this coupon before you head to WalMart!
Happy New Year Everyone! See you in 2016!
