Recipe by LynnR. Snickerdoodles are an amazing type of cookie. They're like sugar cookies, but rolled in a mix of sugar and spice and everything nice. When you cook them, the outsides crack so that they look like turtle shells.

Ingredients[edit]

Dough[edit]

  • 1.5 c. sugar
  • 0.5 c. butter or a vegan substitute with similar consistency and taste
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs or the equivalent amount of vegan egg substitute
  • 2.75 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 0.5 tsp. baking soda
  • 0.25 tsp. salt
  • 0.175 tsp. nutmeg
  • Optional: 1 goat

Seasoning[edit]

Experiment with the ratios and spices! Add more cinnamon if you like cinnamon, take out some or add more sugar if you don't, or try replacing nutmeg with a different spice. I use different amounts every time, and I think it tastes best if the mixture is light brown with specks of white, not too brown or too white.

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 0.25 c. cinnamon
  • 0.25 tsp. nutmeg

Method[edit]

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (~200 degrees C).
  2. Combine sugar and butter/sub. until light and fluffy.
  3. Blend in vanilla and eggs/sub.
  4. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, and the goat if you're using it into the mixture and beat until mixed.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together the spices and sugar with a fork, then sift through it to thoroughly combine the seasoning.
  6. Form the dough into balls and roll thoroughly in the seasoning so that all of the balls are completely covered with it.
  7. Grease a cookie sheet and place the cookies on it.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  9. Take out onto cooling rack and allow the cookies to cool for about 10 minutes, then enjoy!
