After a dentist appointment, a workout, prepping multiple bowls of dough, another workout of shoveling snow, and a massive bakefest, I only managed to get 4 kinds of cookies in the oven.

I just couldn’t bear standing in front of it any longer!

[soft gingersnaps]

[snickerdoodles!]

[thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies]

[dark chocolate fudge chips]


Oh… and I left some cookies out for Santa.

He had a long day at work.


And then just when I thought I was finished baking… I decided to go for a second, third and fourth round at the snickerdoodles. Since posting the recipe on Saturday, I’ve heard from over 50 of you that have tried it. Some have came out spectacularly, others have failed miserably. I made a double batch this morning and they came out great. But I wanted to attempt to tweak this based on the 1965 recipe and the complaints I’ve gotten. Since the recipe is so old and it doesn’t even say what newspaper it is from, I’m not sure where to begin to find the disconnect. After four tries, I ended up with less flour and more liquid – so I’ve updated/edited the recipe.

And now I don’t even want to see a snickerdoodle again for a very long.

      I thought mine turned out with bad texture (so I thought) when I made mine sunday. They didn’t spred out for me either like others were saying. But still tasted good. And last night I looked at the cookie jar and decided to give them another chance.. so i ate like umm… 2..(times 20) woops! I was like no no you know what I think this is how snickerdoodles are suppose to come out, crust on the outside and soft on the inside! I definately have puffy finger today.. crap..

    Oh my goodness, you are dedicated! Weird how minor changes in recipes/ovens/etc can make a big difference in the final product. Hope you are resting and recovering from your baking marathon!

    I made the snickerdoodles this weekend too! I think I left them in a minute or two longer than I should have because they weren’t as soft as I was expecting BUT they tasted great. I also made the mojito tilapia taco bites tonight and they were delicious! Great recipes – thank you!!

    I feel like this is the kind of thing that could either make me greatly appreciate cookies or NEVER want to eat one again.

    Jessica- what is the original recipe (i.e., unedited?) I made these before without the edits and LOVED them- they were perfect! I just made a batch and they all spread out?! I’m thinking the original recipe was the one I used/printed?! I’m confused and can’t figure out what the actual difference is or where it is… thanks! :)
