I LOVE TO BAKE AND BUILD THINGS!
Snickerdoodles are one of my all time favorite cookies. This recipe was originally given to me by my Mom, so thanks Mom!
I find that the recipe makes about 36 cookies.
COOKIE DOUGH INGREDIENTS
WHAT IS CREAM OF TARTAR?
You might be asking yourself what in the world is "cream of tartar"? It almost sounds like tartar sauce.... but don't worry!
Cream of Tartar is actually a pretty common spice that you can find in almost every grocery store spice isle. It is usually included in baking recipes to help activate the baking soda. In fact, "baking powder" is actually a mixture of baking soda and cream of tartar in a 1:2 ratio.
CINNAMON SUGAR INGREDIENTS
*Parchment Paper: I use parchment paper every time I bake to assist with cleanup and to make the whole baking process easier. I'd definitely recommend it here as well.
DIRECTIONS FOR COOKIE DOUGH
COAT THE COOKIES IN CINNAMON SUGAR AND BAKE
I have baked these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies many many times, and they are always a massive hit! The cookies are extra soft and cake-like, and only get better after you have stored them in the fridge.
The recipe below should yield about 18 delicious cookies if you use an over-sized 2 Tablespoon cookie scoop, but you can make closer to 24 cookies if you use a 1.5 Tablespoon cookie scooper. I've successfully doubled the recipe before, and did not have too much trouble using the same bowls to mix everything together.
BAKING SODA MIXTURE
MAKE THE COOKIE DOUGH
0. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
FORM AND BAKE THE COOKIES
6. Use a cookie scooper (1.5 Tablespoon or 2 Tablespoon) to form the dough into balls and drop them onto your baking sheets, about 1.5 inches apart from one another. The cookies tend to puff up more than they tend to spread out, so you can put them fairly close.
7. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies begin to darken and brown a bit.
8. Remove the cookies from the oven and transfer them to cookie cooling racks.
After the cookies have had an ample amount of time to cool off, grab a glass of milk and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies as much as I and my students did! This recipe was adopted from one I found at:
I baked these turtle bars for my students a few weeks ago and they were a big hit! This recipe should yield about 56 scrumptious turtle bars. I used a 13" x 9" pan and cut the bars into 8 x 7.
MAKE THE CRUST
MAKE THE CARAMEL
When the crust is almost down baking, you should start to make the caramel so you can pour it over the crust and then pop everything right back into the oven.
