Do you have your favorite cookie recipes you make over and over again? Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodles are the two at our house. They are the ones I make when I’ve got a craving for a cookie but I don’t want to have to think and I know I’ll have all the ingredients. These White Chocolate Snickerdoodles are a twist on the traditional. So to avoid being too boring I try to change it up a bit. I try adding something in that isn’t normally in the recipe. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I loved what happened when I added chocolate chips and toffee bits to the snickerdoodles – so good. So when I got a craving for snickerdoodles this last week I opened up my baking cupboard to see what I could add in. White Chocolate. Yes, I think everything tastes better with white chocolate. I love white chocolate chips in my chocolate chip cookies so why not snickerdoodle?
Guess what? Snickerdoodles taste better with white chocolate! I loved biting into them and finding that little surprise of white chocolate. I think a batch of white chocolate snickerdoodles would be the perfect way to tell your Valentine you are thinking of them!! Who wouldn’t love some of these sweet treats wrapped in a cute little package for Valentine’s Day!?
I used the unbleached natural waxed paper bags I found at Whole Foods. They are with the plastic wrap, sandwich bats etc. I topped it with a doily and then some baker’s twine. I used my “new” old typewriter to write a little Valentine note.
