If you’ve not already had these delicious bites of awesome you must remedy that immediately and luckily for you I have a recipe to share.
You can pretty much guarantee that anything combining cinnamon and vanilla is going to be amazing, but add maple butter and holy bajolie you’ve gone and created something awesometastical.
Which is what I did, I took the already lush Snickerdoodle and made it even better.
You, are welcome.
To make Snickerdoodles you need the following
85 grams butter
175 grams caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
250 grams plain flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Once you have all the ingredients you need to preheat the oven to180/160C and follow the following steps.
Step1. Combine the butter and caster sugar until pale and creamy
Add the egg and vanilla extract.
Step 2. Sift in the flour, cinnamon and baking powder.
Step 3. Mix until the ingredients form a smooth dough
Step 4. Combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
Step 5. Scoop out a melon ball sized amount of dough and roll in to a ball, roll through the cinnamon & sugar mixture.
Step 6. Place on a baking sheet and smoosh down a little.
Repeat until all the dough is used.
Step 7. Pop the trays in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Step 8. Allow to cool before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Step 9. Enjoy!
I switched out regular butter for Moose Maple Butter, which is exactly what it sounds like, butter made with maple, not Moose!
This stuff is pretty darn amazing; toast, pancakes and waffles are transformed from “meh” to “whoop whoop” with one swipe, it’s a naughty treat which tastes like food heaven.
These tasty treats are best eaten straight out the oven, but they keep for a few days and keep their deliciousness rather bloomin’ well.
On a side note, I used two different store brand baking trays for these Snickerdoodles, the Sainsbury's one performed way better than the Lakeland, shocked I was, SHOCKED! It made no difference to the taste, but I expected better from Lakeland.
I hope you enjoy some Snickerdoodles, they really are rather yummy!
