Martha Monday–Snickerdoodles

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

Thanks for looking!
