Yesterday I shared my new favorite cupcake, the Pumpkin Pie Cupcake. Today I’m going to share my daughter’s favorite – the Snickerdoodle Cookie Cupcake.
This is kind of crazy, but I went the majority of my life having never tried a snickerdoodle. I’m not sure how that happens, I think I must have always been distracted by other cookies. On a trip to Disneyland a few years back, I was looking for the Disneyland bakery snickerdoodles, as I wanted to bring some home for a friend who loves them. Well go figure, there were none to be found. So I had to come home and make some myself. Turns out snickerdoodles are a wonderfully simple and delicious cookie. The kind you can eat way too many of in one sitting (not that I have, it’s just what I’ve heard, or something like that…) Yum. Well the only thing better than a snickerdoodle is a snickerdoodle cupcake topped with a snickerdoodle.
These cupcakes are easy to make and start with a mix.
I topped my cupcakes with a cinnamon brown sugar buttercream frosting that is one of my favorite frostings. Brown sugar + buttercream frosting = a very good thing. I topped my cupcakes with mini snickerdoodles. You can find the snickerdoodle recipe I use right here.
