Snickerdoodles are one of those cookies that everyone I know loves. Some people only make them during the holidays, but I prefer to make them year round! In the past, I’ve made traditional snickerdoodles, doodle sammich cookies, pumpkin snickerdoodles, and pumpkin chocolate snickerdoodles (with a surprise inside)!
This year though, I’ve dressed up my traditional snickerdoodle cookie so it’s ready for the holiday season! These Holi-Doodles are coated in green & red sugar crystals as well as cinnamon. Same delicious taste, fun holiday colors!
These cookies are sure to please the snickerdoodle lover in your life! When baked, they puff up really high then flatten out when as they cool. These Holi-Doodles are firm on the edges, soft in the middle and full of great cinnamon flavor!
I was reading up on the history of the Snickerdoodle and it seems as though many people believe it has a German origin. Which, doesn’t surprise me… having lived in Germany now for almost 3 years I’ve come to realize that the Germans know how to make a good dessert. Whether a cookie, pastry, or cake… everything I’ve ever tried in Germany has been delicious.
Bake Me More traced back the history of the Snickerdoodle to 1889 where they found a recipe in print. Since then there have been many variations, but one thing remains the same… the cookie is always rolled in cinnamon and sugar!
So if you plan to make this traditional cookie this holiday season, try this fun variation and transform your snickerdoodles into Holi-Doodles!
