Happy February everyone! We are getting into the season of Valentines day and sweet treats and I wanted to share one of my favorite cookie recipes. These Pillowy Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies are a favorite for a reason! I’m happy to say that these are made in part of the 2018 Good Cookies Food Bloggers’ Valentine’s Event which raises money for Kids Cancer. Learn more and donate HERE
These cookies are made light and fluffy by creaming together the butter and sugar for several minutes. This creates millions of tiny bubbles, which when baked creates lots of air pockets in the dough. There are so many varieties of cookies and different textures, but pillowy soft ones are always perfect.
I’ve said this before…well more like every time i post a cookie recipe, but cookies are my all time favorite dessert. I could munch on these for hours, which is why i’ve been cutting back on baking for the blog. I’ve been finding that I’ve been doing a bit too much eating rather than photographing and blogging. I’m sure cutting back will help my diet and my teeth, but what about my soul? What will fill the void that’s normally filled by cookies? Kale? Salads? Chia seeds? I honestly don’t know what can help, but I guess I have to try to find something haha
If you like this recipe make sure to share it and pin it! And if you are a HUGE fan, make sure to donate to Cookies for Kids Cancer. Every dollar counts and this money goes directly to helping save lives. Which for a cookie is pretty darn amazing. Also let me know what your plans are for Valentine’s Day! Tai and I are horrible at planning Valentine’s Day and usually wait until the last minute to try and plan things. Your help is much appreciated 😀
