WARNING: These cookies are addictive! I haven't made snickerdoodles in ages and forgot how simply delicious they are.
Curious about the unusual name of these classic cookies, I went to Wickipedia. There are several theories ranging from variations of the German or Dutch words for snail (?) to a tall tale hero by the name of 'Snickerdoodle' as the inspiration. My favorite theory is another recipe following the New England tradition of giving cookies silly names such as Kinkawoodles, Jolly Boys, and Snickerdoodles.
Regardless of the origin, the cookie is great and the perfect treat to send as a lunch box treat with school starting back. Thanks to Spike Bakes for this week's Sweet Melissa Sundays selection. The recipe can be found here!
Pin It!

  4. Hi Candace!

    Great job on your snickerdoodles- they look absolutely delicious. And I definitely agree, these cookies are addictive. I actually sent mine out in a care package, so I wasn't in danger of eating the whole batch myself! But they certainly made my house smell heavenly- I just love cinnamon :)

    I'd love for you to drop by my site and check out my cookies, too! Hope to hear from you soon.


  5. I always wondered how they got their name. Its so fun to say! Your cookies look delicious!
