White Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Do you have your favorite cookie recipes you make over and over again?

Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodle are the two at our house. They are the ones I make when I’ve got a craving for a cookie but I don’t want to have to think and I know I’ll have all the ingredients.

So to avoid being too boring I try to change it up a bit. I try adding something in that isn’t normally in the recipe. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I loved what happened when I added chocolate chips and toffee bits to the snickerdoodles – so good. So when I got a craving for snickerdoodles this last week I opened up my baking cupboard to see what I could add in. White Chocolate. Yes, I think everything tastes better with white chocolate. I love white chocolate chips in my chocolate chip cookies so why not snickerdoodle?

Guess what? Snickerdoodles taste better with white chocolate! I loved biting into them and finding that little surprise of white chocolate.

I think a batch of white chocolate snickerdoodles would be the perfect way to tell your Valentine you are thinking of them!!

Who wouldn’t love some of these sweet treats wrapped in a cute little package for Valentine’s Day!?

I used the unbleached natural waxed paper bags I found at Whole Foods. They are with the plastic wrap, sandwich bats etc. I topped it with a doily and then some baker’s twine. I used my “new” old typewriter to write a little Valentine note.

A pretty and delicious Valentine gift.

    I love all your recipes and try to make most of them! Can’t wait for this one, I’ll put it on my bake regimen for tomorrow. I make all my afterschool snacks, (being a mom of 8 and a wife of a hungry farmer) and this snickerdoodle recipe is going to be a winner I just know it!

    I do enjoy your blog, but must admit I have no use for all the sugar-laden recipes. I don’t mean to be too critical…treats are fun, everyone loves treats! I’m just hoping that by being a “squeaky wheel” I might see more recipes that will help me feed my family well. :)
