Must. Stop. Baking.
I just posted this as my status. Because it’s true. I have to stop baking. It’s getting a little out of hand. I can’t even count how many dozen cookies I’ve baked in the last two weeks. I can tell you, however, that I’ve run out of people to give cookies to, so I either need to move onto differed baked goods or make more friends!
In my non-stop baking frenzy, I’ve made a couple of different recipes of a couple of different cookie flavors. I didn’t initial plan on doing this; it just kind of happened. But, it meant more cookies I HAD to taste test, so I kept up the trend. (What? You don’t want me giving away bad cookies, do you?! Ha!)
Today’s Cookie Bake-Down is the Snickerdoodle. I actually ended up making three different snickerdoodle recipes, but the last one has a holiday flavor kick.
The first snickerdoodle I made was from Oh She Glows.
Angela’s recipe calls for cinnamon in the batter, which I’d never done before, and, honestly, it wasn’t my favorite. The texture was crunchier than I expected, and the flavor was a little off. My co-workers seemed to like this one; they ate all of the samples I brought to a meeting.
The second cookie came from Chocolate Covered Katie.
For both egg nog cookies, I rolled the cookie ball in a mixture of sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I think the nutmeg on the outside brought out the nutmeg from the coconut nog on the inside. Total yumminess.
