Delicious Cookie Treats: 15 Homemade Snickerdoodle Recipes

We’ve been baking enthusiasts ever since we were little kids. We love making all kinds of things but if we had to choose one thing to bake for the rest of our lives, it would be cookies. In particular, we just can’t get enough of snickerdoodles! We’ve spent years collecting as many recipes as we can for making unique snickerdoodles of different kinds, just to keep things interesting.

Just in case you love snickerdoodles as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the most unique recipes we’ve come across so far in our search.

1. Vegan snickerdoodles


Let’s start things out pretty simple; here’s a recipe that will make sure everyone can enjoy the snickerdoodles you love so much, regardless of dietary restriction! We adore this entirely vegan tutorial from The Viet Vegan that makes animal product free cookies quick and easy.

2. Soft caramel snickerdoodles

They show you how to create yummy snickerdoodles that has a warm caramel centre.

3. Snickerdoodle blondies


Just because you love the classic shape or texture of a particular treat doesn’t mean you can’t put the occasional unique spin on it, just to keep things interesting!

4. Gluten free snickerdoodles


Were you pleased to see vegan snickerdoodles on our list because you love finding recipes that account for dietary restrictions, but it wasn’t actually the animal products you were worried about since one your loved ones has celiac? Then we think perhaps you’ll have better luck making something like these gluten free snickerdoodles featured on Serious Eats instead!

5. Snickerdoodle bars


Were you pretty intrigued indeed by the idea of making a snickerdoodle into another kind of dessert like you saw with the blondies but you can’t help wondering what would happen if you took the idea a little further and iced them as well? Then we think this delicious snickerdoodle bar recipe that comes complete with instructions for glaze thanks to Crazy for Crust might be right up your alley.

6. Chai spiced snickerdoodle bars

In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Recipe Runner made these fantastic chai spiced snickerdoodle bars that are packed with unique taste!

7. Pumpkin spice snickerdoodles

15. Mexican chocolate snickerdoodles
