Gluten Free Snickerdoodles

by - January 30, 2019

I love to make cookies. They are easy to make and don't require anything else like frosting to make them absolutely perfect.  I love to have a nice warm batch of cookies waiting for my kids when they get home from school or whip some up when we get invited to a friend's house for dinner.  They are perfect for the holidays or anywhere where you need to bring a dessert.  I love to have options on what kind of cookies I am going to make so that I can switch it up and keep things interesting.  The snickerdoodle is such a classic cookie that just makes everyone so happy.  Most people have grown up eating these delicious cookies and having a recipe where you can continue to enjoy them is a must.

I love cinnamon sugar and so do my kids.  They love a little cinnamon sugar sprinkled on some toast so they go crazy for these cookies.  They are so good, they are chewy, soft and absolute perfection.  Best part is they are easy to make and come out perfect every time.  Everyone will love them and they only thing you might need to do is slow them down coming back for more.  They are such a versatile cookie and can be made for any occasion or any holiday and be perfect.  They don't have a lot of ingredients so most people will love them.
The cinnamon sugar is just amazing.  What is better than a cinnamon cookie? One rolled in cinnamon sugar before baking! I love the texture that the cinnamon sugar gives to the cookies.  It just gives them a nice bite and extra flavor on this amazing dessert.  I usually always have the ingredients on hand so it really makes whipping up a batch of these a breeze.  I really recommend whipping that butter maybe a little longer than you are used too.  I didn't do that for a long time but I have seen a difference in the cookies where I spend a little more time whipping that butter.  I think that they are lighter and fluffier.  Sometimes people have a problem with their cookies going flat and this could be the problem.  Really whip that butter up and also sift the flour.  It may seem like a dumb step but it is necessary to get perfect cookies.  It really doesn't take very much time and it makes a big difference.
Lastly, make sure to enjoy these delicious cookies and share them with those around you so that people can really let go of the idea of gluten free baked cookies tasting gross. Or maybe we should make people think they taste gross and keep all the cookies for ourselves?! I actually think that is a better idea so keep spreading the lies that gluten free baked goods are disgusting and we will all be in the corner agreeing and enjoying all the amazing goodies.
