I got my Physiology exam mark back today! It went really well and I couldn’t be in a better mood. What a weight off my shoulders. All I have left is my Biochem final on the 5th and then I’m off for a little over a week. I’ll be busy prepping for some very exciting stuff that I just CANT wait to share with you guys.
In light of todays good mood, my cousin and I decided to have a Snickerdoodle baking sesh. I simply adore snickerdoodles, they remind me of home.
I’ve always stuck to the classic Snickerdoodle– but today my adventurous side stuffed half the batch with white chocolate and topped the other half in M&Ms. It was hard to choose which one I liked better.
White Chocolate//M&M Snickerdoodles
1 C butter, at room temp
1 1/2 C sugar
2 large eggs
2 3/4 C flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 small bag of M&Ms
100 g of White Chocolate
* If you don’t have cream of tartar — then omit both the baking soda and the cream of tartar for 1 tsp of baking powder.
1.Start by creaming the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer. Add in the eggs.
2.In separate bowl sift the flour, tartar, baking soda, and salt together. Gently combine with the butter mixture.
3.Chill dough in fridge for minimum 20 minutes ,
4.Meanwhile grease cookie sheet and make a cinnamon-sugar mix by combining 4 Tbsp sugar and 3 Tsp. cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
5. When dough is chilled, take a small amount and roll into a ball about 1..5 -2 inches wide.
**if you are stuffing your snickerdoodles with white chocolate, then take a generous piece of chocolate (way more generous than I did!) and wrap it thinly in some of the cookie dough.
Then form a generous layer of dough around that same chocolate dough ball. This way, the chocolate will be right in the centre and ready to ooze out upon your first bite.
6. When ready, roll the cookie ball in cinnamon-sugar mix to coat and place on cookie sheet.
7.Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 deg. Please do keep in mind that the baking time varies upon the size of dough balls.
Sundays are meant for coffee, couch dates, and a few of these snickerdoodles.
