A snickerdoodle is one of the easiest cookies you can make. In its purest form, a snickerdoodle is a cookie made with butter or oil, flour and sugar, and then rolled in cinnamon sugar. Some people add baking soda to leaven the dough, and some use eggs as an ingredient as well. But those are the basics.
What I want to share with you now are recipes that go beyond the basics, turning one of the simplest desserts into a delightful cookie. You’ll find traditional recipes as well as healthy recipes. With so many varieties, it’s up to you to choose those you prefer, but one thing is certain: you can’t not love the cinnamon flavor.
As I mentioned, I want to give you some healthier takes on the classic cookie. The main difference here is that you use whole wheat flour instead of the regular flour. And what do you know—a simple change makes all the difference!
This recipe calls for some eggs, cream of tartar and baking soda in the mix, and the result is soft and creamy snickerdoodles. One of the main reasons why everyone prefers homemade cookies is because store-bought can be flat and crunchy. These are definitely not.
At first glance, macarons seem like one of the easiest desserts out there. But there are so many things that can go wrong, resulting in awful cookies. Luckily, there are people who have become experts in making macarons, and I would like to introduce one of them to you. This girl is great at making macarons, and she’s happy to tell you how!
The best part about snickerdoodles is that they are versatile enough to soak up all the different flavors you add to them. One particular flavor that goes very well is cardamom. This spice, native to India and Pakistan, gives the cookie a sharp and edgy touch to complement the sweet taste.
Ginger cookies are so good. Many people are reluctant to try ginger cookies because they think of ginger as a hot and sour spice. But if you go by that thinking, you’ll miss out on many delicious recipes. Don’t judge it until you try.
Quinoa seeds are neutral in taste, meaning that the classic flavor and taste of the cookies won’t be changed a lot. But what will change is the nutritional value of the cookies. Quinoa is one of the best vegetarian alternatives for meat because the seeds are extremely rich in protein. Hurray for energy cookies!
How do you turn a classic cookie recipe into a vegan one? The best way: opt for almond milk. In the past few years, almond milk has received a lot of praise in the world of healthy living. And rightfully so. The taste is even better than regular milk, and the health benefits are off the charts.
