Do you have a certain food that you’re constantly in search of the perfect recipe for? For me, that food is a snickerdoodle. I love, love, love snickerdoodles – my mom made an awesome version when I was a kid, and as an adult, I’ve found my go-to recipe, but I keep trying out other recipes just in case there’s an even better one out there. It’s similar to how I keep buying jeans even though I already have a closet filled with them. We all have our issues.
So, I made them. And they were indeed fat and indeed fluffy. But y’all? They’re not going to replace my go-to recipe. I found them to taste mostly sweet without enough of a cinnamon counterpoint, and I think I’d like a touch more salt. Please don’t get me wrong – it’s a good cookie, and if you like your cookies soft and, well, fluffy, you won’t regret making a batch.
As for me, I’m going to keep baking my standard snickerdoodle while still seeking the Holy Grail of Snickerdoodlery.* I guess it’s just my mythic destiny.
