Tuesday Treats & Titles: Giant Wolfy Snickerdoodles

Since this past weekend was the full Wolf Moon, and since I featured Sean “Boomer” Donaldson on my FB page on Saturday, I figured I needed to give proper due to his better half. And besides, I love snickerdoodles. I especially love big, giant snickerdoodles that are soft, not crunch. I mean really. Doesn’t everyone prefer soft cookies over curnchy? Frainkly, I don’t remember where I got this recipe. It’s one I’ve had since Only was a kid. It’s pretty easy and definitely yummy!

Giant Snickerdooles
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes, plus 4 hours to chill dough
Bake Time: 12-14 minutes
Total Time: 4 hrs. 30 minutes
Serviing size: Approximately 24

4 1/2 Cup Flour
2 Teaspons baking powder
1 Teaspon baking soda
1/4 Teaspon salt

1 1/4 Cup Crisco
2 Cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon lemon extract OR 1 Teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 Cup buttermilk
1/2 Cup sugar and 2 Tablespoons cinnamon mixed together for coating
Non-stick cooking spray (I use Crisco butter flavor)

Lets Make ‘Em
1 –  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2 – In bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3 – In marge mixing bowl, beat Crisco with mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.

4- Add sugar. Beat until mixed, scraping sides.

5 – Beah in eggs one at a time, beathing well after each.

6 – Stir in vanilla and lemon.

7- Alternate adding in buttermilk and dry ingredients as you continue mixing, scraping sides as needed.

8 – Cover bowl and chill in refrigerator at least 4 hours.

9 – Lightly grease cookie sheet. Use a 1/4 Cup measuring cup or ice scream scoop. Lightly spray scoop with non-stick cooking spray to help prevent dough from sticking. Roll each scoop in cinnamon-sugar mix to coat. Place 3″ apart on cookie sheet. With palm, gently press on each roll to flatten to 1/2″ thickness.

10 – Bake for 12-14 minutes or until bottoms are a light gold. DO NOT OVER COOK. Remove from oven and plase o wire rack to cool

Annie, Boomer’s mate, is the cookie mom in the group. She brought her son Cody into the family and then they had baby Sally. She always ends up as the chair of the school’s bakesale and her goods are always the first to go. Should I mention that Sean is usually first in line? πŸ˜‰ Anyway, these giant snickerdoodle cookies  are a fan favorite around Blaidd’s Gap. You can read their story in WOLF MOON or get even more details in the conpendium volume, MOONSTRUCK: LIES, which also includes the novel, HUNTER’S MOON. Both are available at several on-line booksellters. Just click on a pic with a cover or the titles to head over to Books2Read to find the link to your favorite store. What about y’all? What’s your favorite cookie?

  1. Mmmm, snickerdoodles. Favorite cookie… Hmm… I don’t think I have one. I just like cookies. I make a really awesome chocolate chip cookie with peanut butter. And a really awesome chocolate chip cookie with coconut. And my five-layer bar cookies. And Mom’s oatmeal cookies. Which reminds me of my oatmeal jar squares. Heh, like I said, I like cookies.

    I love these books! I love Boomer and Annie, and the whole Wolf gang. So much awesome. =oD
