Christmas Snickerdoodles are the perfect way to dress up a holiday cookie plate. Same delicious snickerdoodle cookie you love, just with a holiday flair!
One of my boy’s favorite cookies when they were growing up were Snickerdoodles. Whenever we had a house full of teenage boys there was always a batch or two of snickerdoodles around to be enjoyed! They were the perfect snack while playing Halo, which was the game of choice for my boys.
When it comes to the holidays though a snickerdoodle is a little boring. At least in appearance. It isn’t the prettiest cookie. But because I have an awesome snickerdoodle cookie recipe and everyone loves them I decided to dress them up a bit so they would be acceptable on a holiday cookie plate.
Instead of using regular granulated sugar and cinnamon to roll the cookie in I used colored sanding sugar and cinnamon! Sanding sugar can be found in the cake decorating department of your local craft store.
Of course red and green were the color of the season. Then just bake them as normal.
Christmas Snickerdoodles are the perfect addition to your holiday cookie plate – lots of fun color and flavor.
