Snickerdoodle Cookies




Occasionally I think about cookies. I'm not really into cookies that much but my favorites are good old fashioned chocolate chip and sometimes snickerdoodle cookies. The other night I had a dream about snickerdoodle cookies, so I woke up the next day, modified a recipe and made my own rendition of the delicious treat. The key is to not overbake so they are nice and chewy.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

Coating:
white sugar
cinnamon
nutmeg

Heat oven to 425 F
Mix dry ingredients
melt butter and wisk eggs, cooled butter and extracts together
stir in wet ingredients

Mix coating in bowl

make small 1 1/2 inch balls of dough and roll into coating mixture
put on greased baking sheet
flatten slightly with fork (for lines)
Bake 7-10 minutes, making sure you watch to make sure they are a little under-done when you pull them out!

Enjoy!

Hi there! I absolutely love your blog and I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of camera you use to take all of your beautiful photographs?

Hi Honoree,
Thanks, I have several different cameras I have used throughout this blog (as I am a wedding photographer). I have used: Nikon D80, Nikon D300 and currently shoot with the Canon Mark ii 5d most everything you see lately is with the Canon. Let me know if you have any other questions!
