Snickerdoodles are heaven-sent. Cookies of any sort are delicious, to be sure. Only a philistine would disagree with this sentiment. But snickerdoodles, with their chewy, buttery sweetness and cinnamon-scented warmth, are something special. Make a plate of them and almost immediately they vanish before they are cool, leaving only their lingering aroma behind them. Can you think of anything more perfect when it comes to hand-held desserts?
As a matter of fact, we can. Snickerdoodle ... cupcakes. That's right, the best of both worlds -- if by both worlds you mean cakes and cookies. Snickerdoodle cupcakes give you the airy buttery warmth of cake with the crackling sweetness of a Snickdoodle. I'm drooling just writing about it. Serve these suckers up, and you've got a crowd-pleaser on your hands like no other before you. But be sure you plan to double the batch if you plan on having leftovers! Don't say we didn't warn you.
