Sweet Melissa Sundays Rewind: Snickerdoodles - Halloween Style


This week's Sweet Melissa Sundays pick was for Goat Cheese, Olive and Thyme Muffins. I am not a huge fan of olives, thyme or savory muffins so I opted to do a rewind recipe this week. If Goat Cheese, Olive and Thyme Muffins sound good hop over to the Sweet Melissa Sundays site and see the results of those who baked along this week. Thanks to Hanaa for hosting!

I chose a recipe from the Sweet Melissa Baking Book that was done by the group before I joined. Snickerdoodles! I love snickerdoodles and thought they would make a perfect Halloween treat for my nieces, nephews and little second cousins. A little decorative orange sugar and they were instantly Halloweenized (new word!).


The snickerdoodles turned out great! Chewy in the center and a touch crisp on the outside. But be very, very careful to not over bake them. A minute makes a big difference! Snickerdoodles are meant to be chewy, not crunchy!


I packaged the snickerdoodles in clear plastic goodie bags, added each child's name on the outside of the bag using decorative black alphabet stickers, closed the bag with a twist tie, tied the bag off using orange and white curling ribbon and the finishing touch was a creepy black spider ring tucked in around the bow. The cookies were a big hit with the kids and so were the spider rings.



For the recipe click here. If you want to add colored sugar simply add the desired amount to the cinnamon sugar mixture called for in the recipe. I added several tablespoons (3-4) of orange decorative sugar. The cookies have that cinnamon snickerdoodle taste with a splash of color!

Happy Halloween!
