Hallelujah. Snickerdoodles are in season!
Oh how I wish my favorite baked goods could grow on trees. Imagine just walking out to your backyard and picking a ripe cookie off the Snickerdoodle Tree. Then again, that would most likely lead me back to my fat days-and I’m not going back. If you want to know more about that, read my story here.
That’s why I came up with these beauties. Gluten free and natural sweeteners make this cookie a delight in your mouth, but not a lifetime on your hips. You know what I’m talking about.
My Fear Of Cookies
Last time I tried to revolutionize the cookie world I created the Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie. They are still my kids’ favorite treat, but if I’m honest they took forever to come up with! I believe I made them almost 10 times before they were just right.
This scared me a bit. I thought, do I really want to make 10 batches of snickerdoodles trying to perfect them??!?
I sucked it up. Said to myself, this is your business. Deal with it. Worst possible case you give left over cookies out to everyone you see for the next 3 days.
Two batches later they were 👌 perfect.
Can you believe that? It’s so funny how we spend more time worrying about something than actually doing it.
If you love letting your kids bake, have them make these. Or if you’re the kind of person who thinks you can’t bake. These are mistake-proof! All I ask is that you actually put in all of the ingredients. If you forget the eggs that’s on you.
I even tested what would happen if I forget to refrigerate them before baking. They were great and only slightly thinner, not flat at all. The refrigeration process is to help get a thicker, fluffier cookie.
These are perfect for bringing to the next holiday affair you’re invited to, or the next one you host! I am hosting Friendsgiving this Saturday and if I get the turkey in the oven on time, these are definitely happening.
