Sweet Melissa Sundays Rewind: Snickerdoodles
I feel bad to have missed out on so many weeks of recipes from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book. We've had what seems like the craziest summer ever. I finally had the chance to do a little baking this week, and decided to make last Sunday's recipe, snickerdoodles. As with almost every other recipe I've tried from this treasure-trove of a cookbook, the snickerdoodles recipe was a big hit. The cookies were big and chewy, with the perfect amount of cinnamon-sugar coating. We ate them all very quickly, except the "models", which I stuck in a ziplock and forbade anyone from eating until I could find time for a little picture-taking.
My only criticism of the recipe is that I didn't think it had enough cream of tartar. The snickerdoodles I grew up eating had more cream of tartar, and I've gotten used to the little tang it gives the flavor of the cookie. But still, delicious! Thanks to Spike of Spike Bakes for choosing this recipe, which you can find on her blog here.
