Easy Snickerdoodle Recipe

I’ve been experimenting with different recipes using my apple spice mix.

The flavor enhanced my apple spice smoothie, and now I spruced up some cookies using the same spice!

Apple spice mix has cinnamon in it just like you are used to tasting in the classic snickerdoodle cookie.

In addition, there are some extra spices; nutmeg, and allspice which gives it an extra oomph of flavor!

Delicious flavors, in fact!!

Snickerdoodles Made With Butter

Some recipes use shortening in the ingredient list, which will give you a fluffier cookie. My preference is to use real ingredients, so I stick with real butter!

Ways To Enjoy This Easy Snickerdoddle Recipe

  1. I have never heard of apple spice, but I’m intrigued. The cookies look sooo tasty – they look chewy in the middle and crispy around the edges. That’s how I like them!
