Re: Snickerdoodles. ♥

For the past two days I have been making snickerdoodles with that recipe and my friends and family love them so much that I have been playing with the recipe to find new takes on it!  so here are some ideas in case you want to play around with yours as well:

  1. I added 2 tablespoons of Pumpkin Spice Coffee creamer, it really added that extra autumn spice. :)
  2. drizzle the cookies with caramel and/or chocolate
  3. add things to the cookies: candy corn, m&ms, chocolate, nuts, whatever
So yeah, just though I'd give you a little more inspiration for creativity! Enjoy a wonderful Autumn!

Snickerdoodles. ♥

Right now I am trying to write an essay for Southern Culture while resisting the temptations of the inter-webs, blogging, editing pictures from my lovely lovely weekend, and (most importantly) baking snickerdoodles. As you see, I'm losing that battle, but hopefully this will just be a quick post. Since it's Autumn here in the States, it is my absolute favorite time of year, and the best time, in my opinion, to bake! So I thought I would leave you with this quick and easy recipe for snickerdoodles. <3

        1. Oone box of Butter Pecan Cake mix
        2. 1/2 cup oil
        3. 2 eggs
        4. spices (optional) nutmeg, cinnamon,brown sugar, etc.
        1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (Fahrenheit) 
        2. Combine ingredients until a dough is formed
        3. Roll ingredients into small balls and coat in sugar and cinnamon
        4. put balls on greased cookie sheet
        5. bake 8-10 or until they're cooked to your liking.
Then you're done! I hope you're cookies turn out wonderfully, happy baking!
