I've been wanting to make snickerdoodles for some time now since seeing them in a cookbook. Seeing Lorraine's cinnadoodles a while back made me want to make them even more! It's the glittery sugar coating that makes these babies look so delicious.

Whilst they look like a sugar cookie, it's the nutmeg that gives a nice spice flavour to work with the cinnamon sugar coating.
I made these to try and woo my new co-workers at my latest contract job. It's great being around people that love food, mainly snacking as much as I do! So these cookies went down exceptionally well during the day. One even commented they tasted like cinnamon doughnuts.

They are relatively easy to make as far as cookies go. A good classic cookie recipe to keep on file.


250g butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (110g) firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups (410g) plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon caster sugar extra
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1. Beat butter, extract and sugars in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined. Transfer to a large bowl.

2. Stir in sifted flour, soda and nutmeg, in two batches. Cover; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 180°C / 160°C fan-forced. Line oven trays with baking paper.

4. Combine extra caster sugar and cinnamon in a small shallow bowl. Roll level tablespoons of the dough into balls; roll balls in cinnamon sugar. Place balls about 7 cm apart on oven trays.

5. Bake about 12 minutes. Cool on trays.

Makes 42.

Voila! Bon App├ętit!


Makes 42! My god I would be so far. Will put them on the "to bake" list :)

Hi Briony,
Yes, I didn't notice the "makes 42" until I had done about 3 trays and was wondering, "when the hell is this going to end!?!" haha

YAY so glad that you liked those. They were wolfed down at this end too! lol

Hi Lorraine,
They are soooo yum!
