Classic Snickerdoodle Cookies. It’s what childhood is about!
Classic Snickerdoodle Cookies: chewy and delicious, you need to bake a batch of these perfect cookies today!

So, while many of our family and friends are getting snowed in (we miss you Chicago); we are called off because of rain.

Okay, fine, there is some ice too, but I would so rather have snow!

In honor of our snow day (or I guess it would be ice day) we made some delicious snickerdoodles. As with most of my cookie recipes, I double it. I then bake one batch of cookies immediately and the other batch I make into balls and freeze them.

That way, when I am low on time but still want some fresh baked cookies I can whip out my freezer bag of dough and pop in some cookies and have hot, fresh treats in 10 minutes! Market Day sells cookie dough in tubs for just this reason, I do it for myself to save money!

  1. Those snickerdoodles look delicious and so wonderfully crackly on the tops. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called “Sweets for a Saturday” and I’d like to invite you to stop by and link your cookies up.

  2. I love snickerdoodles. There’s just something about the cinnamon sugar combo that is so tasty.

    I’d love to have you share this recipe on Sweet Tooth Fridays. I hope to see you there!

  3. Snickerdoodles have to be my favorite cookie of all time. These sounds so amazing.
