Snickerdoodles

If I was to tell you these are the best biscuits I have ever tasted you might not believe me until you tried them yourself. Snickerdoodles are an American biscuit that have their origins in Germany… there is much conjecture over the origin of the name so I am just going to stick with, its weird, but who cares they taste good!

This recipe is from an American friend whom I met while teaching in Boonah. One thing led to another and we started talking about food (I mean really, most of my conversations end up there). I asked her if she had an authentic recipe from her “MOM” and she did one better saying it was her Grandmothers.

Now you all know that I love Grandmothers and this blog has so many favourite recipes that my Nana use to make on it. So I got a hold of this recipe and made it… Oh my… I think that these should be made and eaten straight out of the oven. I can’t tell you how many times these have been made in my kitchen and then you will hear “hot, hot, hot…ummmmm! They taste like little puffs of the best cakey doughnut you have ever eaten and they aren’t even fried.

The other ingredient that is essential is the copha or vegetable shortening as they call it in America. In the olden days ๐Ÿ™‚ butter was very expensive and only ever used for making special cakes and treats. I have tried the same recipe using butter, but the copha gives it a better lighter texture and it is dairy freeย for those that areย have issues in that area.

This recipe and 9 other amazing biscuit recipes are available on the Biscuit eBook in the shop for only $3.99

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Below are a few tips you might like to take into consideration when you make these delicious biscuits.

Ingredients
copha
sugar
eggs
plain flour
cream of tartar
bicarbonate soda
pinch of salt
cinnamon sugarย 

The biscuits do get rolled in cinnamon sugar that turns into a lovely cracked top when baked

The first time I made these I put them a bit close, see the photo below. So make sure you spread them out.

As stated, you can eat them hot, but even cold, people bite into them not expecting the tasty goodness that is a snickerdoodle. If you have never tried one, please make these and then let me know what you think… I surmise that the rise of the home made snickerdoodle will take off in Australia if people really knew how good they tasted!

    I liked the texture of them while they were hot, however I did find they tasted a little eggy. Could I have done something wrong- I thought I followed instructions

      Not sure Darlene…I’ve not had that one before… maybe mix them a bit longer? or cook them a bit longer? Liz xx
