Snickerdoodles

I’ve been wanting to make snickerdoodles for some time now since seeing them in a cookbook. Seeing Lorraine’s cinnadoodles a while back made me want to make them even more! It’s the glittery sugar coating that makes these babies look so delicious.

Whilst they look like a sugar cookie, it’s the nutmeg that gives a nice spice flavour to work with the cinnamon sugar coating.
I made these to try and woo my new co-workers at my latest contract job. It’s great being around people that love food, mainly snacking as much as I do! So these cookies went down exceptionally well during the day. One even commented they tasted like cinnamon doughnuts.

They are relatively easy to make as far as cookies go. A good classic cookie recipe to keep on file.

Snickerdoodles

250g butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (110g) firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups (410g) plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon caster sugar extra
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1. Beat butter, extract and sugars in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined. Transfer to a large bowl.

2. Stir in sifted flour, soda and nutmeg, in two batches. Cover; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 180°C / 160°C fan-forced. Line oven trays with baking paper.

4. Combine extra caster sugar and cinnamon in a small shallow bowl. Roll level tablespoons of the dough into balls; roll balls in cinnamon sugar. Place balls about 7 cm apart on oven trays.

5. Bake about 12 minutes. Cool on trays.

Makes 42.


Voila! Bon Appétit!

    Hi Briony,
    Yes, I didn't notice the "makes 42" until I had done about 3 trays and was wondering, "when the hell is this going to end!?!" haha
