Every Walk of Life: Snickerdoodle

snickerdoodle cookies and fun red heels

A classic with a spicy kick of cinnamon! Snickerdoodle is the tasteful cookie with a delightfully silly name. Our sweet sugar cookie dough is dressed in an alluring mix of cinnamon and sugar to create a sweet, aromatic treat. With a playful name like Snickerdoodle, this isn’t a cookie that takes itself too seriously. Unlike those other Snickerdoodles that crumble under pressure, ours holds it’s own with characteristically crisp edges that guard its soft and comforting center. This cookie is a real crowd-pleaser. It’s a cookie that has a reputation for being beloved among people of all ages. This cookie may be a little old-school but that doesn’t stop it from dazzling our taste buds!

Turning Cookies Into Pie

Pi Day has arrived and we know the usual way to celebrate is with, well, pie obviously… While we do love some good ol’ fashioned pie we’re just a little jealous of all the attention it gets on this day.

Then we found it. The perfect recipe for saving our tumultuous relationship with that other circular dessert: Snickerdoodle Chess Pie.

Oh, yes.

This is not another one of those day-old-snickerdoodle-pie-crust recipes, either. This one actually turns Snickerdoodles into pie filling! Head on over to somethingswanky.com for the recipe and even more lovely photos of this perfect pie creation. You’ll need about a dozen cookies for the recipe, but don’t forget to pick up some extra Snickerdoodles so you have enough to snack on while baking 😉

Snickerdoodle Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry season is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s so fun to include them in different recipes that range from savory to sweet. I really like adding them to a spinach salad along with chicken, pecans, goat cheese and balsamic vinegar.

My boyfriend LOVES strawberry shortcake. Next to homemade brownies, it’s his favorite dessert. I had some extra snickerdoodle cookies laying around so I thought I’d add a little twist to the classic version and make some open faced snickerdoodle shortcakes. This super easy and three ingredient recipe is quick to whip up and absolutely delicious!

INGREDIENTS:

Pacific Cookie Company Snickerdoodles (or whatever PCC cookies you love!)
Whipped Cream
Sliced Strawberries

DIRECTIONS:

1. I bought a small case of organic strawberries (ALWAYS buy strawberries organic, if you can) and sliced them thinly. The strawberries were so fresh they didn’t need to be tossed with sugar.
2. I put four snickerdoodle cookies in the microwave for 15 seconds so that they are just warm.
3. Got out the whipped cream from the fridge and covered the open face of the cookie entirely. (feel free to go crazy here!)
4. Pour your strawberries over the cookie and enjoy!
