One of America’s Favorites – Snickerdoodle

March 5, 2018 at 6:03 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

A snickerdoodle is a type of cookie made with butter or oil, sugar, and flour, and rolled in cinnamon sugar. Eggs may also sometimes be used as an ingredient, with cream of tartar and baking soda added to leaven the dough. Snickerdoodles are characterized by a cracked surface and can be crisp or soft depending on the ingredients used.

Snickerdoodles are often referred to as “sugar cookies”. However, traditional sugar cookies are often rolled in white sugar whereas snickerdoodles are rolled in a mixture of white sugar and cinnamon.

 

The Joy of Cooking claims that snickerdoodles are probably German in origin, and that the name is a corruption of the German word Schneckennudel (“snail noodles”), a Palatine variety of schnecken. It is also possible that the name is simply a nonsense word with no particular meaning, originating from a New England tradition of whimsical cookie names.

The snickerdoodle is a very common cookie in the United States and Canada, but is relatively unknown in other countries.

In more recent times, the Snickerdoodle cookie has transformed into a popular flavor of desserts, sweets, drinks, etc. Big brands have taken the simple dessert and turned them into their own original products. For example, General Mills created a Snickerdoodle flavored Chex Mix Muddy Buddies to their snack line. During the 2014 holiday season, Dunkin’ Donuts unveiled a Snickerdoodle Cookie Latte on their holiday menu. In addition to a Snickerdoodle latte, Nestlé Coffee-Mate introduced their take on the cookie in the form of a coffee creamer. Brands such as Braum’s Ice Cream and Prairie Farms have dedicated an ice cream flavor to the popular cookie.

 

The Snickerdoodle scent has also become popular in non-edible products. In 2014, Bath and Body Works launched their “Made with Love” holiday collection. This collection included a Snickerdoodle scented candle. However, this scent failed to gain popularity. In addition, the skin care company Philosophy, Inc. released a Snickerdoodle scented body wash and shampoo in their “Twas the Night Before Christmas” collection. Similar to the Bath and Body Works candle, this scent has been discontinued since it is unable to be found on retailer sites besides resellers like Amazon and eBay.

10 Power Foods You Should Eat This Winter
Include these wintertime power foods for diabetes in your meal plan to keep your health on top. Try them in our delicious diabetic recipes!

New Year, New You
Boost your health this season with the freshest winter ingredients. Learn which foods are at their peak during these chilly months, as well as how to pick them, how to cook them, and why they’re healthy. These foods are easy to incorporate into a diabetes meal plan and will tantalize your taste buds all winter long.

 

Brussels Sprouts
These small bulbs grow along stalks and have a taste and texture similar to cabbage. Brussels sprouts take a long time to grow and are best harvested in winter. In the produce aisle, look for sprouts that are green with little yellowing. To prepare this delicate vegetable, use fresh Brussels sprouts (refrigerate them for up to two days); rinse with cool water and remove the outer leaves………

Pomegranate
The edible seeds of a pomegranate are the real fruit of this dry-climate-grown produce. In the United States, pomegranates are typically grown in California and Arizona, where humidity is scarce. The bright red seeds are surrounded by membranes inside and protected by a thick and colorful skin.

Pomegranates are the perfect balance between tart and sweet. Throw these seeds on top of salads, or eat them plain. You can also cook down the seeds and reduce the juice into a delectable syrup perfect for topping off whole wheat pancakes………

Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a kitchen staple that seems to get more popular as the months get colder. Cinnamon provides a hint of spice and warmth to almost any recipe, including pumpkin pie and hot chocolate. In the 1600s, cinnamon was a valuable commodity in the Dutch East India trade, but its use dates back to the Ancient Egyptians.

Bark from cinnamon trees is stripped to reveal an inner bark that is allowed to coil into quills. Quills are then cut and dried. Ceylon cinnamon is commonly grown in Sri Lanka. Cassia cinnamon is similar to Ceylon, but it comes from a darker bark and is much coarser and less fragrant. Cassia cinnamon is the variety typically used by Americans……………..

One of America’s Favorites – Monkey Bread

monkey-bread

Monkey bread, also called monkey puzzle bread, sticky bread, African coffee cake, golden crown, pinch-me cake, and pluck-it cake is a soft, sweet, sticky pastry served in the United States for breakfast or as a treat. It consists of pieces of soft baked dough sprinkled with cinnamon. It is often served at fairs and festivals.

 

 

 
The origin of the term “monkey bread” comes from the pastry being a finger food, the consumer would pick apart the bread as a monkey would.

 

another-image-of-monkey-bread
Recipes for the bread first appeared in American women’s magazines and community cookbooks in the 1950s, but the dish is still virtually unknown outside the United States. The bread is made with pieces of sweet yeast dough (often frozen), which are baked in a cake pan at high heat after first being individually covered in melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, and chopped pecans. It is traditionally served hot so that the baked segments can be easily torn away with the fingers and eaten by hand.

Spice it up…..
Reach for ingredients other than sugar, salt, and fat to satisfy your taste buds. Try out different herbs, spices (cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg), mustards, and vinegars (balsamic, sherry). Some spices may even have health benefits of their own. Cinnamon, for example, may help lower blood sugar levels.
