Glazed Chocolate-Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
You’d never know that these delicious gluten-free cookies are made without wheat flour. A blend of gluten-free flour and almond flour—plus butter and brown sugar—gives them a classic chocolate chip cookie flavor and the ideal balance of crispiness and chewiness. Make a batch as a treat for your family or to bring to parties, potlucks and picnics…………

Stone-Fruit Crostatas with Cream Cheese Crust
When you have a hankering for pie, try making crostatas instead. These open-face hand-pies are just right to highlight the sunshine flavor of fresh ripe peaches, nectarines, plums or pluots. Sprinkle a little sugar on top before baking for extra sparkle and crunch. This is a great summer dessert for any party and can even be made ahead…………..

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.
