Snickerdoodle Doo

16 October 2013

If you haven't guessed by the title this week's recipe is snickerdoodle cookies. Cookies are recently some of my favorite sweet treats, but my love for cinnamon spans throughout my whole life. I like cinnamon in my oatmeal, I like cinnamon flavored gum, I like cinnamon in all my pies and puddings, I like cinnamon rolls, churros, and cinnamon on my elephant ears! Cinnamon makes everything taste better. When I found this recipe for these cinnamon sugar cookies also known as Snickerdoodles I knew I had to try and make them. 

But cinnamon doesn't only taste good it smells really good too!!! For me cinnamon is the epitome of fall scents and next to that is pumpkin. Cinnamon also reminds me of ciders and yummy apple pie. So these cookies are the perfect fall recipe!

I was not sure how vegan I could make this because in the recipe I know that cream of tartar reacts with real eggs to give volume to things like meringue on pies. I didn't know if cream of tartar would react the same way with the egg replacer. My idea of a successful recipe is when my final product looks like the photo that is shown with the recipe so after looking at my photos and the place where I found this recipe I have to say this was bang on. Not only did these cookies rise to perfection but the sugar to cinnamon ratio was perfect and not overly sweet. The center was soft, warm and not at all dry - this cookies are phenomenal. Check out how easy this recipe is below.


For the Dough:
1 cup softened butter
1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg*
2 tsps vanilla extract
3 cups flour
2 tsps cream of tartar*
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

For the Topping:
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tap cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.

Which together the 1/4 cup of sugar with 1 tsp of cinnamon in a small bowl for the topping.

In a large bowl begin making the dough by fitting your mixer with the paddle attachment. 

Cream the butter that you softened by beating it on medium for one minute. Once mixture is smooth add sugar and continue to mix until fluffy. 

Mix in the egg* and vanilla. Be sure to scrap down the sides of the bowl to insure ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

In another bowl combine your dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, cream of tartar and sift or whisk together.

Reduce your mixer to low speed and combine the dry ingredients with the wet ones. Add the dry ingredients slowly adding a little at a time until thoroughly mixed.

You will notice that the dough is really thick and if your mixer is not powerful enough you may have to combine the rest with your hands.

 With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 3 different parts. The dough is quite thick and you may have to stir the rest by hand.

Take 1 of dough and roll into a ball, I use portion scoops to help me do this accurately  Roll the dough balls into the cinnamon and sugar topping you set aside, and then place on prepared cookie sheet.

Allow cookies to  bake for 12 minutes, the cookies should be thick and soft they might also have a few cracks. If you like a thinner cookie feel free to press them down a bit while they are warm. 

Let cookies cool and Enjoy!!!

*All ingredients used for this recipe are vegan. Egg is Egg Replacer. Cream of tartar is required.

I really hope you try this quick and easy recipe as much as I enjoyed baking it. It's a simple and quick recipe that takes about 20-30 minutes from start to finish. If you make these cookies don't be a hoarder, share! The cookies are a perfect holiday gift that will yield about 3 dozen cookies.

Your Turn: If you had to choose one type of cookie to eat for the rest of your life what kind would it be?
