The Spice of Life
Snick-er-doo-dle. Snicker-doodle. No matter how you say it, to a person who has never had a snickerdoodle cookies, it just sound down right WEIRD. I admit, I never had a snickerdoodle cookie until last year. I was the one who cringed at the sound of a snickerdoodle cookie.
Why would anyone want to eat a SNICKERDOODLE cookie?
Because it's the favorite cookie of one of your loved ones.
...Oh, wait is that just me?
Ok, no really, you want to eat a snickerdoodle cookie because they're delicious. And what's more delicious than a cookie? A cupcake, of course!
Before you can start daydreaming of cupcakes. I'm sure you're wondering, what the heck is a snickerdoodle?
Snickerdoodle is simply a sugar cookie with a twist. Cinnamon gave the sugar cookie a whole new make over. Instead of frosting a sugar cookie, it is rolled in cinnamon sugar (cinnamon is also incorporated in the cookie dough)
So why such a weird name for a simple delight? No one knows for sure, although it is rumored to have German or Dutch origins. Where ever the name came from it sure is fun to say!
