Last night, after finishing up my Christmas wrapping, I fell into a baking mood! I was searching the internet, as usual, for a recipe that was somewhat simple, easy, and that I had all of the ingredients for. Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies, but I’ve actually never made them before. I knew I didn’t have cream of tartar, which is usually a staple in these cookies. Luckily, How Sweet It Is and her lovely fat fluffy snickerdoodle recipe came to the rescue.
Sadly, Joe (or his parents) had no idea what a snickerdoodle was when I mentioned it. Good new is, they loved them!
They were, indeed, fat and fluffy!
The recipe yielded about 18 cookies and I’ll have you know that there were only 3 left by the end of the night.
Speaking of cookies, the last of my cookie swap cookies have finally disappeared. Unfortunately, my third batch never came. I inquired about it and she had the cookies come back to her for some reason so she re-made them and sent them out last week. I haven’t received them, but if I don’t, I am sure my stomach will be thankful. That was so nice of her to do double the work, though!
The cookies I did receive were fabulous! Kody from It’s Kody With a K sent over some yummy peanut butter M&M bars in the cutest reindeer tin!
She included a Christmas card with a super nice note as well. Thanks Kody!
She sent over a nice card, too. These cookies were really unique!
Now, I need to narrow down which Christmas cookies I am going to make this weekend! I saved a ton of recipes and only wish that I had time to make them all!
