LOOKING for: Snickerdoodle cookie recipe like Cheryl & Co.

cookiekitchen1February 19, 2008

Ten years ago I enjoyed a snickerdoodle cookie from Cheryl& Co. on a flight from Ohio. They are simply THE BEST! They are made with light brown sugar, are soft and chewy, and more dense than the usual snickerdoodle. Instead of the mostly light in color outside that puffs slightly, then settles and cracks, the top is smoothe. The inside has a thin layer of cinammon and sugar. It seems that instead of being put down as a ball of dough, they are flattened round, dusted with abit of granular sugar then baked. I've been unable to duplicate these. They are wonderful. I realize they are commercial but there must be a similar recipe out there.

I grew up on a farm down the road from Cheryl and spent a lot of time eating her grandma's cookies, which her recipes are based on. Sadly, I don't remember the snickerdoodles - but your description sure sounds good. I didn't haved any luck Googling a copycat recipe. Here's an idea though. I have a sugar cookie recipe from that era, from another neighbor, that calls for the dough to be rolled into balls, rolled in sugar, and then flattened with the bottom of a glass that's been oiled and then dipped in sugar. The cookies are flattened and have a double layer of sugar on top - really good, crispy on the outside and chewey on the inside.
