What Are Snickerdoodle Cupcakes?

If you are unfamiliar with what a Snickerdoodle is, let’s chat!

Snickerdoodles are vanilla based cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar. They are made with a combo of cream of tartar and baking soda as leavening agents, and folks get VERY upset if you make a snickerdoodle without cream of tartar.

I’ll tell you, though…Like I said earlier, my husband’s favorite cookie is a Snickerdoodle, so I have made many, MANY batches over the years and there have been times when I’ve run out of cream of tartar and made them without. And you know wha? You can’t tell.

I am 100% positive people will come at me for saying that, but I’ve tried them side by side and yeah…there truly isn’t any difference. I mean I am sure there might be the most slight different in texture, but it’s really not enough to make a big fuss over.

So with all that said, in today’s cupcake recipe I did NOT use cream of tartar. And yes, I’m still calling them Snickerdoodles. Ot will be fine, it’s all fine.

The FULL RECIPE

ANYWAY…I created this recipe for my friends over at Imperial Sugar and you can find the full recipe over there!!

Would this work as a layer cake using 8″ pans?
