“I really don’t think I need buns of steel. I’d be happy with buns of cinnamon.” ― Ellen Degeneres.
I don’t really know why I never baked Snickerdoodles before this. I had never tasted them and maybe I wasn’t sure it was my kind of cookie? Or maybe was unsure if it would be too cinnamon-y for me ? Or maybe because I had absolutely no reference to know whether I had gotten them right or wrong?
Answer to the first question -Definitely my kind of cookie . Answer to the second – Just cinnamon-y enough. Answer to the third question – Still don’t know , but they are so good I must have gotten them righ
Snickerdoodles are classic cookies that are made by rolling a simple cookie dough in cinnamon- sugar before baking. they can be crisp or chewy. Roy Fare’s version , which i adapted ever so slightly , is chewy. Soft and chewy . And oh so delicious.
Crisp on the outside and chewy in the centre. Full of cinnamon flavour. I know cookies are all time, all season food. But if there ever was a cookie for winter- this must be it. Bite into a warm snickerdoodle on a chilly evening to see what I mean !
