Nothing to Snicker About Apple Cinnamon Snickerdoodles

Updated: Feb 28

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite kind of cookies. They're the sugar cookie's sister with a bit more spice and so easy to add new additional flavors to jazz them up even more!

And given that it's Halloween and amazing fall flavors are available, apple cinnamon is exactly what we need right now. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family did and hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!

Cooking Tips

  • Cereal. I used Apple Apple Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal because it's currently the seasonal flavor they have and it has that cinnamon-y fun flavor already in it. You can use any apple cereal you'd like such as Apple Jacks.

  • Grinding Cereal. I used a coffee grinder to grind the cereal down to a powder. You can also use a mortar and pestle or herb grinder. If you don't have any of that equipment. You can do it by hand by placing the cereal in a zip lock baggie and running a rolling pin over it until it gets to to the texture you want.


1½ Dozen Cookies, Approx. 25 mins
