Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Everyone loves fresh warm cookies fresh from the oven.  These Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies are not only a classic after school snack, they are a perfect cookie to make in large batches to give as gifts. Plus, the kids love helping make this since they get to roll the cookies into cinnamon sugar. We invited friends over for a cookie making party, complete with a tasting at the end, of course.

To start the party, everyone headed to the sink to wash and dry their hands so they could help make the dough. Since all the kids wanted to be able to see what was going on, they piled around and on top of the kitchen counter ready to join in! This recipe is perfect for using those helpers since there is more than just measuring but scooping and rolling the dough, too! Making cookies with kids might be messy, but that’s all part of the fun!

Place cookie 2 inches apart on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes or until golden brown on top.

While the cookies are cooking, we sent all the kids to the sink to wash their hands since they were touching and rolling the raw cookie dough. Even with dirty hands, they could easily turn on our Delta faucet without making a big mess by touching the faucet with the back of their hand or just a finger instead of coating the faucet handle in cookie dough and cinnamon!

You might notice the sink full of prep dishes below their hands, but even though cookie making means dishes and a flour speckled counter, you can barely notice the mess passed the happy kids faces who were thrilled to get to have fun and build memories with you.

I stashed a few cookies aside for pictures, and then piled up the rest on a plate. I wish I would have snapped a picture of the cookie being devoured, but the kids swarmed the plate and they were literally gone in minutes! These Chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies are sure to be a hit with everyone in your house.  They are wonderfully chewy and soft.

Clean-up after the cookies were enjoyed was made really easy with my Delta Touch faucet. Even my big cookie sheets and mixer bowl clean-up beautifully in the sink with the high arch of the faucet that allowed them to easily fit in the sink. We love the touch feature where just a single tap anywhere on the faucet body will turn on and off the water. Plus, the faucet is gorgeous and adds beauty to our home.



Why do people treat mess like it’s a bad thing? It’s actually the evidence of a life well lived. When you’re out there making, creating, doing and playing, embrace your #HappiMess and let Delta kitchen and bath innovations help clean up so you can do it all again tomorrow.
