Spicy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Spicy Snickerdoodle Cookies created by Vino Girl

I don't think this is like most other Snickerdoodle recipes - in fact, I'd say they're more of a molasses or spice cookie. Either way, they are really good, and really chewy for those who like that kind of cookie. The cornmeal gives them a really interesting texture that I like a lot. The recipe says it makes 70 cookies, but either I made them too big or I ate more dough than I thought because I only got 56! This is from a 2003 Woman's Day magazine.

    These are nice cookies, and so darn pretty! They are sort of like mild gingersnaps, so next time I'll increase the cinnamon to 3 teaspoons, the ginger to 2 teaspoons, leave the nutmeg as is, but add 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, and see how they are. I also think I'll use all brown sugar, too. This time, I used shortning instead of margarine. I will probably stick with that, or try them with only butter. What they're called is not important to me. For my part, I'll probably call them gingersnaps. Day after UPDATE: The mildly spicy flavor of the cookies has become quite attractive. I will probably not alter the spices - or make two batches, one the same as the recipe, and another with more spices. Really good cookies. Thank you.

    I only gave this one star because it doesn't even come close to a snickerdoodle. It is a ginger cookie! The words came from my 5 year olds mouth. I even tried using cinnamon sugar to roll the dough in, but it still came out tasting just like a ginger cookie and nothing like a snickerdoodle. Very good cookie if you are looking for a soft gingery cookie, though.
