My love affair with cookies is never ending. I wanted to convert my old snickerdoodles recipe for a long time, but something else always seemed to come up. Last month, I needed to bake gluten and nut free treats for a school fundraiser. Chocolate chip cookies are always popular sellers and were my first choice. And then I noticed that my chocolate chips were made in a facility that also processes nuts.
With the butter and brown sugar already in my mixing bowl, I needed a backup plan. I decided that it was time for an updated snickerdoodles recipe. My day got worse when I realized that there was no cream of tartar on hand. I substituted baking soda and baking powder and hoped for the best. While these cookies are not traditional, they are delicious.
And these cookies will make your home smell just like the holidays.
Delicious and kid friendly, these snickerdoodles are the perfect, make ahead dessert addition for any gluten free dinner.
