Surpise Soul Mates: Strawberry Snickerdoodles
Strawberry and cinnamon are not obvious soul mates. They are not like peanut butter and chocolate. They are the couple who when you find out they’re a couple, you go, “Really?” But then you see them together and see their chemistry, and you are like, “Ok, I see it now.”
I just thought I should let you know that you will have a revelation like this one when you eat these cookies. I’m usually a chocolate girl when it comes to cookies, cakes…well, desserts in general, I guess, but I make one exception and that is for snickerdoodles, especially these ones. Imagine a soft, pillowy mound of sugary goodness studded with juicy strawberries and lightly sprinkled with cinnamon sugar flavor.
Holy crap, they’re good.
makes 1 1/2 dozen
3/4 c sugar
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 c + 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 c chopped fresh strawberries
1 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. Mix well. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
Fold in the chopped strawberries.
Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
Use your cookie scoop (or a tablespoon would work) and plop the dough balls, one at a time, right into the sugar/cinnamon mixture and roll it around.
Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets (or use parchment paper).
Bake 14 to 15 minutes. Cool on the pan for 10 minutes.
