Welcome back to Martha Monday! Today I’ve chosen a simple new classic!
The Snickerdoodle on page 82 of Martha Stewart Cookies :)
I’d never heard of the Snickerdoodle until I moved to the states. Not sure why, don’t think it’s an American treat. I mean it’s a sugar cookie that is rolled in cinnamon sugar. Kind of genius really!
So since this is the first Martha Monday of the year, I went with simple. Plus I had a great helper :)
Easy/Hard: If you can turn on your mixer and make little balls, you’re hired!
Ingredient availability: Pretty standard stuff.
What I like about this cookie: Everything! Especially the smell. They have a cakey texture and a crisp exterior. Actually the first batch out of the oven is probably more crispy than most would want because I had a mommy moment and forget they were in :)
Baking experience: I had my trusty sidekick with me, so it made the experience most excellent. The recipe said it made 1 1/2 dozen cookies, so I guess my cookies weren’t as big as hers. I got 3 and half. They also didn’t spread out as much as she said they would.
Taste: They have cinnamon in them, LOVE!!!
The recipe can be found here on Marthastewart.com
Thanks for looking!
