Why did I have to go and ruin perfectly good snickerdoodles?

At least that’s what my husband said with glaring eyes…

before he tried them.

And then pounded seven consecutive cookies with a Diet Coke and a half. Sink standing and all.

Trust me, I love classics just as much as the next person. But I also enjoy switching things up just a teeeeeny bit in order to come away with something delicious. Not as a substitute – but as an addition. You know… like in addition to the 4 batches of snickerdoodles I will bake for the holidays, I’m now going to add 4 batches of these too. I will then have something like 8 batches of snickerdoodle-like cookies, which will promptly be divided in 2 once we eat half the batch before Christmas actually happens.

Sounds like someone’s getting better at math…


These cookies weren’t my idea – they came from a reader, Natasha, who is basically becoming the most popular person on the planet because they taste like a little chew of heaven. Not even kidding. Make them. You will eat half the batch. It’s cool .. but share a few and you can be popular too.

I, on the other hand, won’t be popular because I want to keep these all to myself.
