I made some Snickerdoodle cupcakes for a clothing trunk show I had at the house. Shopping for cute clothing and cupcakes. My two favorite things, other than my precious children and husband…of course. 🙂 I have lots of favorite things, just like the incredible Julie Andrews. I could make a list of all my favorite things right now, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about today. I’m here to talk Snickerdoodle cupcakes! I love snickerdoodle cookies. I love the old-fashioned goodness of that cookie. I love the cinnamon and sugar coating. I LOVE the name. Who couldn’t like a snickerdoodle?
I ended up trying Martha Stewart’s recipe from her Cupcakes book, which is my favorite cookbook. One of these days, I want to make every cupcake in that book, but that has not happened yet. Between running at 5:30 AM four days a week, wrangling two children under 4 all day (well, I have a smidge of a break on Tues/Thurs…awesome sauce), grocery shopping, cleaning, cooking dinner, 2 bible studies, MOPS, spending time with my super cool husband and watching Biggest Loser of course…well, I just have not had the time or energy to make all of Martha’s wonderful cupcakes yet. Anyhoo, back to the Snickerdoodle cupcakes, I used her cupcake recipe but used a different frosting. I made a cinnamon buttercream for the cupcake. I loved that frosting. They really did taste like the cookie.
Here’s to a good ol’ Snickerdoodle!
