Classic Snickerdoodle Flavor

Snickerdoodles have the warm and comforting flavors of cinnamon. Making snickerdoodles is popular during the winter months and adding red, white, and pink sprinkles and red sanding sugar makes them festive enough for a Valentine’s Day gift.

Valentine’s Snickerdoodle Cookies

These cookies are made just like the traditional snickerdoodle cookie. With the subtle cinnamon flavor throughout the cookies and the soft and chewy texture, these cookies say, “I Love You” and says, “I’m baked with love.” They’re also incredibly easy to and makes about 3 dozen cookies! It’s a great cookie to make a lot of and share with loved ones and friends!

Great Cookie Gifts

These Valentine’s Snickerdoodle Cookies are so easy to make and they’re easy to get the cookies in a uniform shape and look. It’s as simple as pinching off a 1-inch piece of cookie dough, rolling it into a ball and then rolling it into the sugar mixture.

For easy cleanup, I use silicone baking mats. It makes it a breeze to clean up the loose sugar and sprinkle granules.

To spruce the cookies up furthermore, sprinkle additional sanding sugar on top of them.
