Snickerdoodle Cookies with a Valentine’s Day Twist

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had planned on posting another Valentine’s Day craft today but after all the love you guys gave me over my Valentine’s Day Candy Bark I thought you wouldn’t mind another tasty dessert recipe. This time it’s my Snickerdoodle Cookies with a Valentine’s Day Twist. My husband absolute favorite cookies are snickerdoodles. He loves them. He also loves when I make them to for him to bring to work. I think he likes to show off. If there is ever a night when I ask him what dessert he want he will always say these cookies. I like them too, but personally, I’m a chocolate chip kinda girl.

Since they are his absolute favorite, I made a few batches last week to add to his Valentine’s Day care package. Since I was going with a Valentine’s Day theme I wanted to spruce up these yummy treats with a festive look. I did that by adding in some pink sprinkles to the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bam. Valentine’s Day cookies! So easy, and so festive. I think these would be really great for homemade Valentine’s too. Okay, on to the recipe…

Making Home Base Snicker doodles V Day

Ingredients:

For cookie batter:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

For cinnamon sugar coating:

2 tbsp sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp pink sprinkles

 Directions:

In a mixing bowl beat butter until smooth (about 3o seconds). Add the 1 cup of sugar, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of the bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour in 1/2 cup increments. Cover and let chill for about one hour or until the dough is easy to handle.

Preheat oven to 375° F. Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of sprinkles. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in sugar/sprinkle mixture until completed coated. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until edges are golden. (Watch them carefully they bake up fast!) Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    I’m with your hubby…give me snickerdoodles any day of the week! Although I wouldn’t turn down a chocolate chip cookie either! What an easy way to dress them up for a holiday. I’m sure he will love them. Have a great week!
