Love. Create. Celebrate. : Snickerdoodles

Friday, March 28, 2014


One of the things I'm loving about being home all day every day is the opportunity to bake all the time! 
I baking is such a great thing to do at home with a little one. 
Most bake goods only take up to 30 minutes to prepare (done during nap time or play time), and then I can easily start feeding my daughter while they are baking in the oven. 
Since I've been on my maternity leave we have had an almost constant supply of fresh cookies, breads, and treats in our kitchen. 
This week I made some delicious snicker doodle cookies.


1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 sticks (1 cup) butter
1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp plain greek yogurt

For the coating: 
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

  1. Whisk the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon and salt together in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter on the stove over medium heat. It will start to bubble. Once it’s bubbling nicely start whisking it until it begins to brown and smell sort of nutty. For me this takes 5-10 minutes. It’s easy to burn it, so keep an eye on it. (When it’s brown it will look like the first photo above.) Immediately remove the butter from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  3. Beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until blended. Next mix in the egg, yolk, vanilla and yogurt. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time, and beat on low until they are just combined.
  4. Cover the bowl of dough and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes or in the fridge for 3 hours.
  5. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and roll the dough into balls (use about 2 tablespoons of dough per ball). Stir together the 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in a small bowl. Coat the dough balls with the cinnamon-sugar, and line the dough balls up on a cookie sheet about 2″ apart.
  6. If you can’t bake all them at once, put the dough balls back in the fridge until you can pop them in the oven. If the dough isn’t cold enough your cookies will end up too flat.
  7. Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes—until the tops crack. Cool on wire racks. Enjoy!

There is something about the brown sugar and greek yogurt combo that made these cookies amazing! 
Unlike any other snicker doodle I've had before. 
Be warned that it is hard to resist eating more than one at a time.
