Recipe: Snickerdoodle Cookies From Magnolia Bakery Cookbook

I'm sure you have all heard of Magnolia's Bakery before but if you havent then it is a very popular bakery in New York. It recently opened a branch in Dubai and i wanted to pass by there when i was there recently but unfortunetly i didnt have time because i was only there for the weekend. I actually have the cookbook from the bakery itself. It was a gift i got from London. I highly doubt that you can get it in Kuwait so thats why i am going to post some of my favourite desserts recipes from the cookbook into my blog. (I will also post my favourite recipes from other cookbooks and even ones i created myself)

Now keep in mind that Magnolia's Bakery are very famous for their cupcakes but they also offer other desserts like; cookies, brownies, cheescake, etc. Here is the recipe for one of my favourite cookies..Its called a snickerdoodle cookie and its basically a plain sugar cookie but coated with cinammon and sugar.


2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ cups sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoons sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons cinnamon, for sprinkling


In a small bowl, combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, milk, and vanilla, and beat well. Add the dry ingredients and mix throughly.
Wrap the dough tightly with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion. (i recommend leaving extra room between these cookies because they spread more than most.) Sprinkle generously with the cinamon-sugar mixture. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
Cool the cookies on the sheets for 5 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 3 dozen cookies
