I’m sure many of us remember eating our fair share of snickerdoodles growing up. This classic American treat has been around since the 1800s and is still loved by people all over the world.
If you’ve never had a snickerdoodle before, you might be wondering how this cookie differs from other types of cookies. Well, snickerdoodles are typically made with flour, sugar, and usually eggs.
However, unlike most traditional cookies, the dough for snickerdoodles is rolled between two sheets of parchment paper instead of being cut out by hand. This helps keep the cookies flaky and tender, while also making them easier to eat.
Another fun fact: the name “snickerdoodle” comes from the sound that the batter makes when it hits the baking sheet. It sounds like someone saying “snick-er-do”.
