Snickers Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle cookies are one of the best cookies to make with ingredients right out of the pantry.

The only ingredient needed that may not be in the pantry is the cream of tartar.  But what a good reason to keep some on hand.

So often, out of the blue I’ll get a craving for snickerdoodles and be able to make then on the fly only because they’re made with such basic ingredients.

But I haven’t mentioned the best part yet, it’s just a small hack to a snickerdoodle cookie by adding a cute little Snickers bite in the middle.

By wrapping snickerdoodle cookie dough around one Snickers baking bite, a Snickers Snickerdoodle cookie is born.

When the cookies are still warm after coming out of the oven, I like to break them apart (carefully because the middle of the cookie is very hot) and serve them in a bowl as a desert finger-food.  Kind of like a “broken cookie party mix”.

These cookies are especially yummy looking when broken apart because of the gooey Snickers middle.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

Snickers baking bites, softened butter, sugar, eggs, flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

Here’s how to make it.

In a medium-size bowl, add the flour…

…cream of tartar,

baking soda and salt.

Stir together and set aside for a moment.

In a large mixing bowl, add the butter,

eggs,

and…

…sugar.

Next,

beat the butter, egg and sugar mixture…

…until it’s light and creamy.

Then,

set the mixer speed to low and slowly spoon in the dry ingredients.

Lay the cookie dough on to a large piece of plastic wrap and form the dough into a fairly flat round.  Wrap the dough completely in plastic wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small bowl, add the sugar and cinnamon.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon until incorporated.  Set aside while making the cookie dough balls.

Roll 1-1/2 teaspoons of dough into a ball.  Then flatten out the dough ball with the back side of a small spoon or the palm of your hand.

Set a Snickers baking bite in the middle of the flat piece of dough.  Wrap the dough around the candy and form a ball that completely covers it.

Coat the dough ball with the cinnamon and sugar mixture on all sides.

Set the sugar and cinnamon-coated cookie dough balls on a large ungreased cookie sheet.  Repeat the process with the remaining cookie dough.

Bake in a preheated oven in batches.

So that the cookie doesn’t form a “mound” in the middle, after the cookie bakes for 10 minutes, lightly press a spatula on top of each cookie to slightly flatten it.  Then bake for another 4 minutes (total baking time is 13 to 14 minutes).

Remove from the oven and transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.

Then dig in.

A glass of milk may be required…

…these cookies are so good when dipped in milk or coffee.

Try some “broken cookie party mix” for a fun finger-food dessert.

Serve in a bowl and garnish with the remaining Snickers bites.

Yum.

more yum.
