I love a good Snickerdoodle. It must be a family trait because so do our kids. Luckily it is one of those things that can be baked by a preteen with little supervision. Yes… we can’t get away with calling a 10-year old a kid anymore, because ‘everyone’ knows that that once you’re ten you suddenly become a preteen, right? That’s another story! But, at least this preteen comes with little attitude and some creativity in the kitchen. The confetti take on Mama’s Snickerdoodle recipe… all her.
This is a super simple recipe to whip up. I mean, if a kid preteen can do it…. so can you! Just make sure you set a timer because ‘someone’ in our house forgot on the first batch. A good 10-12 minutes and these cookies are ready to pop right into your mouth. I hot-potatoed them in my hands to cool mine off first, but I couldn’t wait to try these colorful concoctions.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cups softened butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
For the Topping:
1/4 to 3/4 cup confetti sprinkles
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Just follow the directions for Mama’s Snickerdoodles, and add one simple step:
- Roll dough balls through confetti sprinkles prior to rolling them in cinnamon/sugar mix. Coverage depends on the amount of color you want in your cookie, but no more than 3/4 cup of confetti sprinkles should be needed for the entire batch of cookies.
