A cookie you won't snicker over

Sometimes, the perfect dessert is just a cookie away, and I wanted to tell you about an easy new cookie recipe I tried over the weekend. It was one of these necessity-is-the-mother-of-invention things. I had half a box of graham cracker crumbs left over from a dessert I made for Father's Day last month, and I didn't have anything in mind for them, so I thought I'd look online and see if anything caught my eye. I found this snickerdoodle recipe, and it was just the thing.

Cookies made by rolling the dough into balls always seem to work up fast, and in no time, I was enjoying a cup of hot mango tea and enjoying some crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside snickerdoodles. Something about the graham cracker crumbs gives these a fabulous texture, and these cookies may be appearing on my Christmas cookie plates this year!

The other thing I like about cookies is that if you're a sugar fan like I am, they help with portion control. Just one or two can be the perfect dessert or snack, and if you're looking for an easy cookie to try, I can recommend this one. With a cup of tea on the side, of course!


  1. Growing up, Snickerdoodles were always a favorite at Christmastime.

  2. I made Snickerdoodles every weekend for my family growing up - mainly my little brother. I used the family recipe of my oldest friend I have - still friends, since age 3. Thank you for sharing your found recipe you used. I never thought of graham crackers in the dough - I always have leftover crackers I usually just send home with the grand.....would love to try this recipe. You are soooo right about cookies. They are the perfect teatime treat. I love them too b/c they're zero fuss and transportable to my outdoor "zen" room - where I usually take tea. During summer it's usually iced tea though out there.

  3. Yum, those snickerdoodles look good! Maybe I'll try them using cinnamon grahams, to make them even more cinnamon-y.

  4. YUM!!! I just took these out of the oven and they are wonderful! I had Nabisco Honey Maid Grahams, made with real honey.

    1. Love the idea of using flavored graham crackers! Thanks!

  5. Yummmm! And they do sound good with a good cup of tea.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
