I can’t take credit for baking these snicker doodles. My daughter baked them. I inherited my love for baking from my mom, and I guess my daughter got it from me. Snicker doodles have been her specialty for a while now. The weird thing about snicker doodles for me personally is that I never even heard of them until I was an adult, but now they’re a favorite. The recipe comes from Alice Medrich (of course), and in case you’ve never tried them before, they’re a simple cookie which you roll in cinnamon and sugar before baking to get that signature color. I’ve seen a lot of snicker doodles bake up flat, but these were just about perfect. A combination of factors must influence the shape, such as the quality of your levener, the warmth of the dough, preheating the oven, etc., but I swear it’s almost random sometimes. In any case, I guess I love snicker doodles because they’re so darned simple. No ganache, chips, nuts, icing, etc. Just a great cookie.
