Disneyland Snickerdoodle Cookies
It’s official — I’ve got less than 30 DAYS until I’m back in Walt Disney World for Mardi Gras! Can you tell I’m excited?
My Disney Withdrawals are taking over, what better way to cope than with making some delicious Disney treats at home! If you can’t enjoy Disney treats in the parks, I have found that Disney treats at home can be pretty great too.
If you follow along with me on Instagram, it’s no secret that Disneyland has been on my mind this week. I’m not sure if it was the recent closing of Paradise Pier or the fact that I’ve just been dying to get back, but I decided for my recipe this week to find something from the West Coast!
When I ran across this recipe for Disneyland Snickerdoodle Cookies, I got so excited! Snickerdoodles are easily my favorite cookie and after making a few batches for Christmastime, I was ready to try a new recipe — a Disney recipe.
- 3½ Cups of Flour
- ½ Teaspoon of Baking Soda
- ½ Teaspoon of Cream of Tartar
- 2 Sticks of Butter
- 2 Cups of Granulated Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- ¼ Cup of Milk
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
- 3 Tablespoons of Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Sift together the Flour, Baking Soda, and Cream of Tartar in a bowl and set aside.
- In another bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
- Add in the eggs, milk, and vanilla to the fluffy mixture. Mix well.
- Stir in the dry mixture from the other bowl.
- Roll the dough into 1 inch balls.
- Combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
- Roll each dough ball in the topping mixture and place it on cookie sheet with Parchment paper.
- Flatten each ball on the sheet.
- Sprinkle additional Cinnamon Sugar topping on each flattened cookie if necessary.
- Place full cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 8 minutes or until the cookies are cooked through.
- While the recipe calls for 8 minutes, I found that my cookies needed about 8-10 minutes.
- Rolling the cookie dough in the cinnamon sugar topping is optional, but I find it makes the best taste!
One difference between this recipe and others I’ve tried is the idea of flattening the dough out before they bake. I liked this because you could see exactly how big each cookie would be and you didn’t have to worry about the cookies overlapping in the oven!
Since I had so much dough, I had a fun time making different sized cookies in each batch. This could come in handy for big parties or smaller groups, you can customize the size and how many to make based on your event!
Well now that I’ve made some Disneyland cookies, this has only fed my desire to get back to over there! I’m so happy that Nick and I kept so many things to remember our trip there for our honeymoon. With Walt Disney World as our home park, we wanted to remember everything about our time in Anaheim — we even kept our paper Fastpasses for a few rides since those are a thing of the past in Orlando! Looking back through everything, I realized that we held on to Fastpasses for two attractions that are no longer there. I’m so glad that we though to hold onto these special souvenirs that we can always look back on!
Much like Disneyland, I’d say these cookies are pretty magical! I’m so excited to see what other Disney-inspired recipes I try in this new year.
