There’s no doubt that snickerdoodles are yummy (even without gluten!), but I have to admit that part of my attraction to this cookie is the adorable name. Wikipedia tells me that the name snickerdoodle may be a corruption of a German or Dutch word, or my favorite hypothesis: “the name has no particular meaning or purpose and is simply a whimsically named cookie that originated from a New England tradition of fanciful cookie names.”

Anyway, I made this batch of snickerdoodles using the recipe in BabyCakes Covers the Classics. They are all of the cinnamony and sugary goodness that I remember from my mainstream cookie eating days, despite the lack of eggs, butter and gluten. I may need to look into those other fancifully named cookies – everything is better with some whimsy!
