Vanilla Bean Snickerdoodles


Vanilla Bean Snickerdoodles


Remember that vanilla bean paste that I made earlier this week? Well, I'm finally trying it in a recipe. And surprise surprise, it's a cookie recipe.



Vanilla Bean Snickerdoodles


And this is not like your regular cookie recipe. It's snickerdoodles.

Now I have made snickerdoodles once before. I have made whole wheat snickerdoodles and apple snickerdoodles, but nothing can beat some good old fashioned vanilla bean snickerdoodles. These may be my favorite cookie recipe so far! They were gone in two days, tops.


Vanilla Bean Snickerdoodles


What usually puts me off of making snickerdoodles is the question of what to do with all of the extra cinnamon sugar that you don't use. Do you just throw it out? That seems like too much of a waste. Do you just sprinkle it over toast? Well, I don't eat toast nearly enough for that.

I guess I'll need to make more of these snickerdoodles. This is definitely a make again recipe.

What you'll need:

Cookies:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Topping:
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time with around one minute in between each addition. Beat in the vanilla bean paste until fully combined
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until fully combined. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and 1/3 cup of sugar until fully combined. 
  5. Lightly spray 2 baking sheets and set aside. 
  6. Scoop the dough by large tablespoonfuls and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheets, around 2 inches apart. 
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are slightly brown. 
  8. Remove, and allow the cookies to set on the baking sheets for around 10 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
