My little sister told me about this idea, making snickerdoodle cupcakes. She's been obsessed with baking and reading baking blogs lately. We love to collaborate on ideas and trade information. So today I'm sharing a recipe for Snickerdoodle Cupcakes.
You can use any vanilla cake recipe or even a boxed cake mix. I used this recipe here (for my warm vanilla cupcakes).
2 3/4 cups of flour
2 Sticks of butter (room temperature)
1 3/4 cups of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of almond
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake as directed and ice with vanilla butter cream icing (recipe here). Then sprinkle a cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
For the cookie on top you can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe with the cinnamon sugar mixture sprinkled on top before baking. I used this recipe here. I made teeny tiny 1 to 1 1/4 inch cookies to top it off.
