Guest post: Michelle shares her Snickerdoodle recipe

JavaCupcake Note:  This is a guest post from Michelle of Kissed by Sweets! Make sure to check out her blog and find her on Twitter too!! 

Hey everyone! My name is Michelle, and I’m the creator of Kissed by Sweets, a Sweets and Vegetarian Treats Recipe Blog ( I’ve been baking pretty and delish treats for the last 10 years, and giving them out to co-workers, neighbors, and my fiancé, Mr. Sweets (in an attempt to fatten him up!). I started my blog because several people would ask what my recipes were, so I wanted to share my experience and the ease of cooking and baking with everyone! I would also love to start selling my baked goods, and eventually open up a bakery! I hope you enjoy these treats! Please check out my website, http://www.kissedbysweets, and leave me a comment on my Twitter @KissedBySweets ! Thanks!

Snickerdoodles (who came up with that name, anyway?) are an all-American favorite, so they mean a lot to me. You see, I’m an American living in the UK, and no one really has a sweet tooth like us Americans! They don’t even like cinnamon…or peanut butter! Yeah, I don’t know why I’m still living here either, except to open their eyes and mouths to delicious treats that are pure American, like Snickerdoodles! And guess what? It worked! Prince Michael of Kent, a cousin of the Queen, tried one of my amazing Snickerdoodles this week! Soon the Queen will be calling me up asking for a box of them!! Ahh, pipe dreams…

I got the recipe from this website:


• 1 cup Butter
• 1 1/2 cups Sugar
• 2 Eggs
• 2 3/4 cups Flour
• 2 teaspoons Cream of Tartar
• 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
• 1/4 teaspoon Salt
• 3 tablespoons Sugar
• 3 teaspoons Cinnamon

~ Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F

~ Mix butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and eggs in a large bowl

~ Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl

~ Mix dry ingredients into the butter mixture

~ Chill dough in the fridge for about 15 minutes

~ Mix the 3 tablespoons of sugar and the 3 teaspoons of cinnamon together in a small bowl

~ Roll 1 inch balls of the snickerdoodle batter in the palms of your hands, then roll it in the cinnamon sugar mix until fully coated

~ Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes!

Your house will smell amazing for the rest of the day!

Thanks, everyone! Smooches! Xoxo
